Sony’s CEO Takes 16% Pay Cut

After three years of continuous losses, Sony’s CEO, Howard Stringer, is finally taking a 16% paycut in efforts to allocate that money to other parts of Sony. Okay, so 16% isn’t a lot from a $4.2 million salary, but hey, it’s something.

From the tragic earthquake that occurred in Japan, the company has lost about $3 million and continues to suffer losses after the devastating Sony hack that happened a few months ago from the LulzSec hacking group.

Obama Plans Cyber Attacks, While 62K Logins Are Leaked

President Obama has signed executive orders that outline how far the U.S. military can go with cyber attacks. The Obama administration believe that the current cyber attacks are just one step away from being full blown attacks and outline the current state of affairs of American cyber security.

Obama plans on using cyber attacks in the Middle East both for offensive and defensive measures, such as unleashing a virus on the enemy’s network or taking down the entire network.

‘Teampoison’ Threatens To Reveal LulzSec Identities

A hacking group in the Netherlands, dubbed teaMp0ison threatens to publish photos, phone numbers, and addresses of LulzSec members in order to give them a taste of their own medicine. The ‘medicine’ refers to what LulzSec did to some of its own members after learning some members went rogue and leaked log files to officials.

Anonymous then said that they would only target only corrupt politicians and reassured that no data was lost or stolen from the attack. Anonymous claimed that they wanted to send a message about corruption.

Sony Pictures Gets Hacked: 1 Million Passwords Exposed

The same group of hackers that targeted the PBS website not too long ago, claim they have hacked into a Sony website. The hackers call themselves LulzSec or the Lulz Boat and claim that they’ve exploited the Sony Pictures website through a SQL injection attack.

The hackers claim, “We recently broke into SonyPictures.com and compromised over 1,000,000 users’ personal information, including passwords, email addresses, home addresses, dates of birth, and all Sony opt-in data associated with their accounts…

Sony’s Last Words Before Court Hearing

CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, Kazuo Hirai offered an explanation for the Sony attacks less than a week before Sony’s June 2nd court date. Hirai undoubtedly pins the attacks to the Anonymous group who made a number of threats against Sony, immediately after Sony decided to pursue George Hotz for teaching others how to pirate. Let me also remind you that a file was found deep in Sony’s network that carried the slogan of the Anonymous group, “We are Legion” and the file was called “Anonymous.” Assuming Anonymous isn’t being framed by some rival hacking group (if there is one), all fingers point to them.
