Sony’s supplementary website So-net Entertainment was compromised by hackers which accounted a loss of $1,200 worth virtual points, reports said.
The hacker stole points from more than 120 accounts and got hold of e-mails from 90 accounts.
The Japanese mobile internet provider said in a statement that it found out about the attack on Wednesday after customers complained. The company disconnected the IP addresses and found out there have been about 10,000 attempts to break into the system.
The company cleared doubts the incident had nothing to do with Sony’s hack fiasco in April which forced the company off line for more than three weeks. Sony’s Thai domain was also hacked on Thursday after a phishing site was found running on Sony’s servers.
No evidence, however, has been found about the hackers obtaining private data such as names, addresses and phone numbers.
