“Electronics giant Philips has been hacked for the second time in a month and its databases raided.

Usernames and encrypted passwords were leaked after the breach. It is not clear at this moment whether email addresses or the actual contents of corporate emails were included in the records dumped from the company’s SQL databases. The lifted data was uploaded to various file hosting sites by hacktivists, who used blogs (since taken down by Google’s Blogspot service) and social networks, using the hashtag labels ‘AntiSec’ and ‘LulzSecReborn’ to spread the word.”
