Sony Reports New Cyber Attacks on Multiple Websites

AFP/AFP/Getty Images(TOKYO) -- Sony announced Wednesday that hackers have broken into the Sony Ericsson website in Canada and the Sony Music Entertainment website in Greece, putting the personal information of more than 10,000 users at risk, according to the BBC.

The Japanese company said although users' credit card information was not compromised, their e-mails, passwords ,and phone numbers were.

This latest breach comes on the heels of the largest cyber security breach involving Sony's PlayStation Network service, which shut down the system and jeopardized the information of 100 million users.

Two other websites -- one in Indonesia and one in Thailand -- were also hacked on Wednesday but no information was taken, Sony spokesman George Boyd told the BBC.

All four websites have been shut down for now.
