Sony has been hit by another hack in which users of the Sony website in Thailand were redirected to a fake site fake site posing as an Italian credit card company, designed to steal money off Sony network users, according to Reuters.

The hack was reported by internet security firm F-Secure.

This latest hack comes less then a month after approximately 100 million Sony online gaming and entertainment site users had the majority of their personal information stolen from PlayStation Network, Qriocity and Sony Online Entertainment sites.

In a second attack last week, So-Net, Sony’s internet service provider, alerted customers on Thursday that an intruder had broken into its system and stolen virtual points worth $1,225 from account holders.
