Sony Pictures on Friday confirmed that its Web sites were hacked by a group that identifies itself as LulzSec.
LulzSec, meanwhile, said tonight that it also hacked into FBI-affiliated Web sites.
“The cybercrime wave that has affected Sony companies and a number of government agencies, businesses and individuals in recent months has hit Sony Pictures as well,” Michael Lynton, chairman and CEO, and Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures, said in a joint statement. “We have confirmed that a breach has occurred and have taken action to protect against further intrusion.”
