Breach Spreads to Canadian Website
DATA LOSS—CANADAMay 25, 2011
Bloomberg reports on an unauthorized intrusion into a Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications website located in Canada. The names and e-mail addresses of approximately 2,000 customers were stolen. Discovered on Tuesday, the incident prompted the mobile phone company to disable the website. This latest breach comes after incidents earlier this week affecting Sony services in Thailand, Indonesia and Greece. "This is getting very serious," one analyst notes. "What looked like a game-related attack in the U.S. is spreading to other businesses, such as music, and to all over the world."
