Hacker group LulzSec, which bought down the PBS site and published stories that dead rappers Tupac and Biggie Smalls were alive and living in New Zealand, claim to have taken control of Sony’s network.
The twitter account of the group, @LulzSec, had a few tweets stating that it had already nicked some information from Sony servers as part of an ongoing campaign.
“Hey @Sony, you know we’re making off with a bunch of your internal stuff right now and you haven’t even noticed? Slow and steady, guys,” LulzSec tweeted.
If it is true, then it is bad news for Sony and its security clampdown. The outfit has seen more than its fair share of hacks since April 20. The worst resulted in the shutdown of its PlayStation Network and Qriocity for a month and the leak of more than 90 million user accounts.
LulzSec said on Twitter that it was not behind the Sony PlayStation Network hack and has concentrated on Sony’s music business.
The group also said it’s looking to attack Sony further, tweeting on Yesterday that its recent attention surge has prompted us to make the next Sony operation more classy.
Sony has not made any comments about the tweets.
