After everything it's been through with one of the worst cyber-security breaches in history --Sony is now bracing for a third wave of attacks.

According to CNET, a group of hackers plans to hit Sony's website this weekend. Their goal is to publicize the information they're able to copy from Sony's servers, which could include customer names, credit card numbers, and addresses.

The attack is apparently in retaliation for Sony's handling of the Playstation network breach. Sony's top brass on Friday apologized for the breach that has impacted some 100 million customers. They are now offering free identity theft protection for anyone affected.

The company is said to be considering offering a reward to help catch the hackers.
