A GROUP OF HACKERS claims it has seized control of eight Sony servers because of the firm's lax security.

The group called Null Crew made the claim on Twitter and via a Pastebin release.

The release shows a list of usernames and passwords that apparently relate to Sonymobile.com, and a message to Sony that accuses the firm of not having strong enough security credentials. This, of course, is not the first time that Sony has been hacked.

"Sony, we are dearly dissapointed in your security. This is just one of eight sony servers that we hve control of. Maybe, just maybe considering IP addresses are avaliable," says a message posted to Pastebin.

"Maybe, just maybe it's the fact that not even your customers can trust you. Or maybe, just maybe the fact that you can not do anything correct technologically."

The most infamous attack on Sony saw 77 million users' details exposed and lead to the firm shutting down a range of its networks. We have contacted Sony Mobile about this more recent attack and await its response.

Null Crew claims to have access to a range of other websites too, and on Twitter said that it had attacked Cambodian government websites in retaliation over the arrrest of one of The Pirate Bay's cofounders. µ
