As if two cyber attacks in as many weeks wasn’t enough, it appears Sony could be in for a third, according to chatter in a IRC channel.

According to an CNET tipster, talk in the IRC channel suggested Sony’s website will be the target and that whatever data is retrieved will be made available publicly.

An observer of the Internet Relay Chat channel used by the hac*ers told CNET today that a third major attack is planned this weekend against Sony’s Web site.

With fears already high that PSN users’ personal details, along with credit cards, are being sold by hackers, this could be another huge publicity problem for Sony. PSN, the original target, is still not back online as yet.
