"Unlike the PSN and SOE break-ins, this hack is not likely to have any serious consequences; it should be restricted to a relatively unimportant Web server that has no access to sensitive customer information"

Move on

It's a dupe too, was posted like a day ago.

Arsetechnica users are fapping to this article anyway....check out the comments.

The host was hacked, not Sony. And no one's info is even in jeopardy.

Yapp..Sony networks still unreliable.

Move on

Good friggin luck phising Italian credit cards of a specific company from a Webiste in Thailand.

That's like going to war in Iraq because of the actions of an idiot who lives in Afganistan.

Wait a minute...

I'm sleepy. Why does the image show PSN when this has nothing to do with it? Sigh.. I'll go back to bed...

nopunctuation2589d ago

Everyone just ignore this article. Nothing to see here. PSN is still up and will not be hacked again.

xAlmostPro2588d ago

Journalists really will say anything for hits

Ars is really lame. This is just so dumb. Has zero to do with gaming.

Sony's Thai site ? This has NOTHING to do with PSN or gaming.But i guess some people just need to post anything that has Sony and hacking in the same sentence huh ? Even the article itself is saying that it has little to no effect on consumers, so could you please stop posting articles like this.

I love the way the title says "Sony hacked again" in order to paint a picture that the main PSN was hacked again. The author, Peter Bright, then post a disclaimer that this has nothing to do with the PSN hack and will not cause much harm because it was just a Thai consumer website.

Reminds me of Fox "News." Yellow journalism.

"END OF THE WORLD...but not really. But I got your attention didn't I?"

Fox news was created from Satan.

i didn't see any mention of PSN in the title. whats your beef? seems like your the one who associates any negative sony news with their shitty network PSN

DeeZee2588d ago (Edited 2588d ago )

So this got approved despite all the reports, watch it get to 1000 degrees. Kinda sad because it's a little misleading since most people will think PSN got hacked again. I like N4G. but maybe it's time to pay someone to check some of this stuff. I'm not even sure if this can be classified as gaming related.
