Sony has been hacked again and this time the hackers are taunting sony making game references to them. Just when Sony is gearing up for one of the biggest video game conferences in the world, they get attacked yet again.
Even to mention they unlocked a achievement (made famous on Sony rival console made by Microsoft the X-BOX 360) on the 6 hack. As proof they released internal network maps of Sony BMG.

Supposedly bringing the total count of hacks against Sony in since April to 16 (by different hackers in total). Which has to be very troubling news for Sony in light of such a big event as E3 and revealing their new portable system VITA.


"Konichiwa from LulzSec, Sony bastards!" the group wrote in a post (http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/6449737/Sownage_2) on the Pirate Bay peer-to-peer sharing site. The message continues:

"We\'ve recently bought a copy of this great new game called "Hackers vs Sony", but we're unable to play it online due to PSN being obliterated. So we decided to play offline mode for a while and got quite a few trophies. Our latest goal is "Hack Sony 5 Times", so please find enclosed our 5th Sony hack. Enjoy this 54MB collection of SVN Sony Developer source code. That's hackers 16, Sony 0. Your move!" Later, the post was updated to say:

"ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: HACK SONY 6 TIMES! Oh damn, we just did it again, please also find enclosed internal network maps of Sony BMG." (A list of sony hacks lists 15 but does not include the latest LulzSec leak of Sony BMG data. LulzSec also says it hacked Sony BMG sites in Japan, the Netherlands and Belgium, as well as Sony Pictures.)
