Hacker group Lulzsec is claiming to have grabbed the source code for Sony Computer Entertainment's Developer Network.

In other words, that's the code of the website which can only be visited by registered Sony developers.

Not too exciting in itself, you might think. But what else could have been accessed while the hackers were poking around? Developer forums, or platform SDKs for example?

Lulzsec made the announcement via Twitter. The group has previously claimed responsibility for an attack on Nintendo's servers, as well as a pop at the Sony Pictures website.
