Make Believe, your personal information is safe

What is going on with Sony's security?  They've been hacked yet again by LulzSec.
LulzSec announced Thursday it hacked servers at Sony Pictures and Sony BMG. The group posted what appear to be the stolen e-mail addresses and passwords of about 50,000 consumers who’d registered for one of three Sony promotional sweepstakes: last year’s “Seinfeld — We’re Going to Del Boca Vista!” giveaway, a January contest Sony conducted with AutoTrader, and a Sony contest to promote the film Green Hornet
This hack is hot on the trail of previous hacks of
LulzSec is the same group that cracked PBS on Sunday to protest Frontline’s hour-long documentary on WikiLeaks. In that hack, the group stole and posted thousands of stolen passwords, and added a fake news story to a PBS NewsHour blog reporting that deceased rapper Tupac Shakur had been found “alive and well” in New Zealand .
Sony Japan still hasn't re-opened their Playstation Network, and I believe it's because they know their security isn't up to par.  Let's hope they can get this under control or they are going to have some legal troubles.  Not to mention lose customers.

We still remember you loading rootkits on our computers when we bought your music CDs.
