Sony BMG internal network maps exposed

Sony has been caught on the wrong end of a hackers agenda for the past few weeks. First their entire PlayStation Network was hacked with information stolen and quickly leaked to the Internet, then when the service was relaunched, the website was once again taken down due to an exploit.

Earlier today LulzSecurity managed to obtain the source code for Sony Computer Entertainment Developer Network and now they have also released internal network maps for all of Song BMG. While this release is not as damaging as the previous, these new maps can help others who wish to obtain information from Sony by providing insight on where to obtain key bits of data.

These attacks have shown that the Sony networks are unsecured and that the company is in serious need of an overhaul to its security protocol. This latest release shows that if you have given any information to Sony, it is imperative that you update your passwords on all of your accounts.

The continued attacks on Sony have unveiled a number of their key online servers being unsecured. Later today, Sony will take the stage at E3 and talk a little bit about the recent PSN outage.

this why Sony is being brought to its knees:

"PayPal has granted Sony access to Geohot's PayPal account, and the judge of the case granted Sony permission to view the IP addresses of everyone who visited geohot.com. "

This episode is more and more looking like terrorism.

Please stop throwing around that word. Nothing against you btw but this word is so overused. All this is is a public display of what Sony should have taken care of a LONG time ago. This group of misfits should have been hired by Sony to patch up these holes. So should have GeoHotz or whatever his name is...

Losing customers? Well, I didn't stopped using Windows when I saw that it was full of holes and security flaws. Actually, I finally got my genuine license a few days ago. I didn't stopped using GMail when they lost thousands of account data. Actually I have more e-mails redirected to my GMail Account. I won't stop playing my PS3, or sell it to buy a XBox because Sony was hacked. It's a matter of what company the hackers want to hack. They want to hack Sony because of that episode with that moron GeoHot. Some ppl think they're fighting for something, but they have no reason to fight. They're only messing with big companies, starting to **** government, and they will pay for that soon...

In other words, la-la-la-can't-hear-you?

As the late wwf/wwe wrestler owen hart would say enough is enough. Sony needs hire some hitmen or people like SEAL Team Six that found osoma and pop-cap in these little turds for good.

Meanwhile X-Box Live remains hack-free and gaining customers!

Important because this article is about gaming platforms and their respective gaming networks.

Seriously Sony.. they're losing tons of customers and they wont even get better hardware and software to protect them and thier customers.. they'll just keep losing customers this way.

I read an article last year that stated more security experts will be needed this year then before.
It was right, and it looks like they will be hired by Sony lol

I wouldn't say Sony. Security seems to typically be outsourced. Though MANY more companies will be hiring security experts in the coming years.

Nice! I'd love to see the map, just to see what their internal infrastructure consists of.

They really need to just "pull the plug" and get their act together. Annoyed customers and bad publicity are going to cost much more than downtime.
