Sony Finds Another Security Hole

May 18, 2011

As if the first breach wasn’t bad enough, Sony says it has found a security flaw on one of the websites set up to help the 77 million users affected by April's hack attack, Reuters reports.

Sony spokesman Dan Race said the company found a "security hole" on a website set up to help the victims reset their passwords. It could have potentially allowed the April hackers to get back in. "If I had your e-mail and your birth date I could get access to your account," Race said.

In response, Sony "temporarily took down the PSN [PlayStation Network] and Qriocity password reset page," Race said.

 

Members of Congress have been investigating Sony's handling of two data breaches that affected 100 million users.
