Dodgy “All Sony systems” hacked claim made by ransomware group | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #ransomware

Allegedly Sony has been the target of a ransomware attack. Sony’s data has supposedly been held for ransom as the company refuses to buy it back. Honestly, this reminds us of some of the best PlayStation horror games, truly a thing of nightmares.

Hackers claim to be selling Sony data online

As reported by Cyber Security Connect, the group that has allegedly taken all this data from Sony is called The group did provide ‘proof’ of their hack which supposedly showed a screenshot of an internal log-in page, an internal PowerPoint presentation discussing test bench details, and some Java files. The hacker group has also posted a file tree that looks to be quite lacking in content (just 6000 files). When you consider this is allegedly “all” of Sony’s data that has been compromised, something feels a little fishy about the whole thing.
“We have successfully compromised [sic] all of Sony systems. We won’t ransom them! We will sell the data. Due to Sony not wanting to pay. Data is for sale, we are selling it.”

The hacker group has not listed a price for the data but has left contact information for anybody who would be interested in making a purchase — which you shouldn’t do. The group has also listed a “post date” of Thursday, September 28, 2023, which Cyber Security Connect believes will be when the hacker group will post the entire leak wholesale if no buyer comes forward.

Sony is yet to make any kind of response to the matter and we want to reiterate that this hack is yet to be officially verified. All of this could just be an elaborate hoax to get Sony and the players panicking. We hope it is nothing more than a hoax as having all of Sony’s data just out there in the void is a scary thought indeed.

What do you make of this situation? Believe it to be true? Will you be playing the best PS5 games like nothing is happening? Let us know in the comments below!
