Hackers used a SQL injection flaw to inject malicious code into the Greek Sony BMG site.

Sony can't seem to catch a break as hackers have broken into yet another Sony network.

Hackers used a SQL injection flaw to inject malicious code into the Greek Sony BMG site.

In April, 77 million people were put at risk after a hacker stole the names, dates of birth and credit card numbers of people who play online games through the Sony PlayStation console. That hack was followed by the discovery of a password exploit that would allow a hacker to change a password armed only with a PSN account email address and date of birth.
