Hot Pixel Issue?

I posted this in the Sony PDX10 forum but didn't get a response. It's not necessarily particular to that specific model, but a general question regarding 3 CCD and Hot Pixels:

On my PDX10 when I shoot low lit scenes I have a group of 5 pixels that appear to be Hot Pixels with the center one showing up white. The pixel above, below and to the right and left of it have a light grey appearance to them. When shooting a bright scene they are not very noticeable.

How can a white hot or dead pixel show up on a 3 CCD camera? Wouldn't all three CCD's have to be bad in the exact same spot?

I've cleaned the lens, but can there be internal dust causing this?

Hot pixels are quite common at CCD's especially when the slow shutter is used.
