Hackers apparently part of LulzSec Reborn and AntiSec have taken credit for breaching world renowned electronics manufacturer Philips. Same as the last time, the information published online is actually the one leaked in February 2012.
Philips representatives have confirmed for Softpedia that the files published by the hackers – containing 200,000 email addresses and other thousands of user details – are in fact the ones stolen earlier this year.
This isn’t the first time this month when hackers publish the old data, claiming that it’s part of a more recent breach. R00tBeer hackers did the same thing
“We immediately investigated and, at this time, all indications are that the information posted today is identical to the information accessed earlier this year when data was stolen from Philips websites,” Philips told us at the time.
