A grey hat hacker known as idahc, has managed to compromise Sony Europe's Database of Application Store.

The SQL injection hack has revealed 120 credentials, including the username, password, mobile, office, email, and website of the affected users -- all in plain text. Last week, the same hacker has once again managed to compromise ca.eshop.sonyericsson.com, with the hacker claiming that he had the ability to extract credit cards data, but didn't do it since he doesn't perceive himself as a black hat.
