Further investigations in the PSNetwork security breach brings bad news for Sony. Its multiplayer game service was also hacked. Known as Sony Online Entertainment, the service is the second major victim of a huge hack attack on the Sony’s most ‘moneymaker’ products. PlayStation chief Kaz Hirai declared on Sunday that the credit card details of nearly 10 million PSN users may have been acquired illegally.
The damage doesn’t stop here. Another 10,700 bank account numbers have been stolen from the SOE network, property of users outside US (Germany, Austria, Netherlands and Spain). The first lawsuit against Sony’s latest security issues comes from a user in Alabama, and this is just the beginning of a wave of legal scrutiny.
