The hackers who recently compromised the web site of US broadcasting service PBS now claim to have obtained user information from Sony Pictures.
Hacking group LulzSec said that it was able to compromise the database of Sony Pictures and obtain the account details of more than one million subscribers.
LulzSec said that the breach was executed by way of an SQL script injection, and that an attack could be carried out without the need for outside technical or financial support.
"SonyPictures.com was 'owned' by a very simple SQL injection, one of the most primitive and common vulnerabilities, as we should all know by now. From a single injection, we accessed everything," the group said in its announcement.
"Why do you put such faith in a company that allows itself to become open to these simple attacks?"
The hackers said that the Sony information was unencrypted and that, along with the user details, the group obtained 75,000 music codes and 3.5 million music coupons from a single SQL injection.
LulzSec made headlines earlier this week when it compromised the web site of PBS. The hackers posted a phoney news article claiming that rapper Tupac Shakur is still alive and living in New Zealand.
The reported breach is the latest in a nightmare stretch for Sony. The company is still working to restore services following a major data breach of its PlayStation Network in April.
In May, the company once again fell victim to hackers when a phishing site was discovered to be running on one of the company's servers.
Sony is not alone in facing data breaches. Defence contractor Lockheed Martin said earlier this week that it had been the target of a hacking attempt, although no confidential information was said to have been accessed.
