According to cybersecurity experts Cyber Security Connect, Sony may have been hacked by Ransomed.vc group threatening to leak and/or sell all information in the company’s ecosystem.
Let’s remember that This is not the first time they have faced information theft.. In 2011, the PlayStation Network suffered a massive leak of user data on the platform. In 2014, the American film subsidiary suffered a hack, which caused losses of almost 200 million dollars. Meanwhile in 2015 it trusted BlackBerry after a cyber attack.
In relation to the current infiltration carried out by Ransomed.vc this month, they would have accessed 6,000 Sony files. Since the Japanese giant refused to pay what they demanded, Ransomed.vc published the following on its leak sites:
Sony Group Corporation, formerly Tokyo Telecommunications Engineering Corporation and Sony Corporation, is a Japanese multinational conglomerate headquartered in Minato, Tokyo, Japan.
Then they added that:
We have successfully compromised all Sony systems. We will not save them! We will sell the data. Because Sony doesn’t want to pay. DATA IS SOLD. WE SELL THEM.
Comment on Cyber Security Connect The Sony hack data provided, at first glance, doesn’t seem entirely believable:
… () appears to contain screenshots of the internal login page, an internal PowerPoint presentation describing the details of the testbed, and a series of Java file data.
According to cyberattack experts, they added that the tree of files published by the hacker group may contain no less than 6,000 files. Something that would be less if they were able to compromise all the systems. Indeed, a series of compilation log files and many more Java and HTML files.
Until now Sony has yet to officially address the issue regarding the leak. and, in addition, Ransomed.vc indicated that, if the company has not purchased the data by the 28th of this month, all the files will be published on the web.
