Ourmine hacker crew hijacked the official Twitter and Facebook accounts for Sony PlayStation Network (PSN) on Sunday and claims to have stolen PSN database.

The dreaded Ourmine hacker crew is back, after the recent hack of social media accounts of HBO and Game of Thrones, the team hijacked the official Twitter and Facebook accounts for Sony PlayStation Network (PSN) on Sunday.

The Saudi Arabian group of white hat hackers hacked the Netflix US Twitter account (@Netflix) in December to promote its website and hacking services, it is known for its attacks against high-profile Twitter accounts. The list of victims is very long and includes Mark ZuckerbergTwitter co-founder Evan Williams, David Guetta Daniel Ek, former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, the CEO and founder of Spotify, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, and many others.

On Sunday evening Ourmine published a tweet to claim the hack of PlayStation Network and theft of its database.

Other tweets posted by the group were inviting the company to contact them through the Ourmine website and pay for the security service offered by the crew.
“PlayStation Network Databases leaked #OurMine,” the first tweet by OurMine on the compromised PlayStation Twitter account read. 
“No, we aren’t going to share it, we are a security group if you work at PlayStation then please go to our website,” reads another Tweet published by the group.

The tweets and the Facebook post were promptly deleted.
OurMine shared the same message on the PlayStation Network’s official Facebook page.
At the time, it is still unclear if OurMine has stolen the PSN’s database.

Last time the company was breached was in 2011 when the PlayStation hack exposed the personal details of more than 77 Million PSN users.

Stay Tuned!
