Hackers Find Another Security Hole in Sony's PlayStation Network

Stockbyte/Thinkstock(TOKYO) -- Just a few days after Sony began restoring the PlayStation Network because of a massive worldwide security breach, the company learned of a new security hole Wednesday.

As a result, Sony was forced to temporarily take down a Web page where users could reset passwords for their PlayStation accounts, the result of the first security breach discovered about four weeks ago.

Initially, Sony said birth dates, email addresses and perhaps credit card information were compromised because of the hacking of its PlayStation Network, which affected over 100 million users.

Things appeared to get back to normal a few days ago until the new security hole was discovered that could once again enable hackers to get a hold of accounts.

As of late Wednesday, the password reset page remained down, although Sony insisted that the security hole was fixed.
