Nothing new nor surprising but just an affirmation that Sony’s woes are far from over.
Sony has been hacked almost 10 times in past three weeks. Though this is of little interest nor would want to specify the do’s and dont’s , cause the list of mistakes which admins and IT management team of Sony committed can be a thesis in itself. What were their intentions when they were designing / deploying such architecture is a matter to be analyzed.
This latest hack is based on SQL Injection Attack and those want to learn something about SQLi and its after-effects should analyze this hack.
