The group behind the hacks in CIA, Sony, Nintendo and US Senates shuts down.

Lulz Security, commonly known as LulzSec, decided to put an end to their attempt to revive the AntiSec movement. The group said that they originally planned to operate only for 50 days.

“For the past 50 days we’ve been disrupting and exposing corporations, governments, often the general population itself, and quite possibly everything in between, just because we could.

Sony is once again enduring security breach problems, as the Sony Music Japan and Sony Ericsson were attacked through SQL injection.

Following the attack on Sony BMG Greece last Friday, Sony Music Japan and Sony Ericsson were also hacked this week. A team of hackers, called LulzSec, released a database from Sony Music Japan through a post-bin link that was posted on the team’s Twitter account.

According to Sophos, LulzSec is believed to use a SQL injection to obtain the records. However, the database in question does not contain names, passwords and other personally identifiable information. The hackers said that there are two other vulnerable databases, but it is unknown whether these contain sensitive user details.

In addition to this, Sony Ericsson was also intruded and personal data from 2,000 Canadian Eshop was stolen. But the company cleared out that the passwords were encrypted and no credit card details were taken. Nevertheless, embarrassment on consecutive security breaches may probably reach almost unbearable levels for Sony.
