Identity Thief at Sony

Sony Marketing (Japan) Inc. said Thursday that an identity thief has accessed its membership Web site and converted users’ points to coupons worth some 280,000 yen.

The Sony Corp. <6758> unit detected the improper access, for which 95 pairs of e-mail addresses and passwords were used, following a report on Wednesday by a member whose points have been converted to coupons without his knowing.
