Greek data loss confirmed by Sony

Sony has confirmed reports of a security breach on some of its Greek Sony Music Entertainment sites.

"Sony Music Entertainment Greece learned late Sunday about a data breach involving certain Sony Music Greece websites," a statement read. "These sites, which were artist websites allowing fans to sign up for newsletters, were taken down immediately.

"Approximately 8,500 records containing email addresses, telephone numbers, user names and passwords were obtained; however, the sites did not offer any commerce activity and therefore no credit card data was involved.

"The affected sites were hosted by a third party and were not part of the Sony Music Entertainment network. Sony Music Entertainment Greece plans to re-launch the sites as soon as possible after further security review."
