Sony hacked again.... this is just sad. is reporting that Sony has been hacked yet again by a group called LulzSec. This time the target was The hack was carried out using a simple SQL injection attack and unbelievably the passwords were stored in plain text. Sony should unplug all of their internet connections worldwide. If I ever have someone's resume come across my desk and Sony is listed as a former employer that resume is going right in the round file.

Should SQL injection attacks really even be illegal? Think about it... what is a SQL injection attack? You enter a URL into a browser and the remote server returns data. What exactly is the crime? Seems to me everything is working as designed. Maybe Sony should be prosecuted for building a website that leaks personal information on demand.
