I am from Sony Pictures and saw your piece this morning on the attacks Sony has been under. I wanted to point out that the 1 million number you refer to in relation to an attack was announced June 2 by LulzSec, however, the actual number is less than 38,000. There is a notice on our web site:sonypictures.com (click on the red banner)
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. Among other things, we also compromised all admin details of Sony Pictures (including passwords) along with 75,000 "music codes" and 3.5 million "music coupons".
In celebration of little girls getting bigger bones, we're now emailing NHS and informing them of those admin passwords we took months ago.Because if we fucked over those that give health, people would literally die laughing at our antics. Poor lungs = poor lulz, people.
"Sony Says LulzSec Lied About Number of Records Lost" - we didn't say we stole 1 million, we said we compromised 1 million. Silly @Sony :3SonyPictures.com = ~1,000,000 total users split into various tables of ~200,000 (x2) ~300,000 (x1) ~75,000 (x2) and ~125,000 (x1) @Sony tell everyone about how many users are in that SonyPictures database; users we accessed does not equal users YOU didn't protect. :D
