Group Claims It Hacked Sony Website, Stole Customer Information

AFP/AFP/Getty Images(TOKYO) -- Sony has been hacked yet again.

This time, a hacker group known as "Lulzsec" claims it has stolen the personal information of more than one million people from the Sony Pictures Entertainment website.  The group says it obtained passwords, email addresses and birthdates of customers in the U.S. and posted the information on their website.

The hackers say the breach was easy because none of the data was encrypted.

This latest attack comes after a separate security breach exposed the personal information of 100 million PlayStation network users in April.
