The lights are on
If you're still trying to work out all the details of what happened with the PlayStation Network security breach over the last month or so, you're not alone: Apparently Sony is still piecing things together as well according to a recent update submitted to the House Energy and Commerce Committee's subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade.
Giant Bomb has the full letter from Sony's Kaz Hirai, which apologizes for Sony's failure to appear before the committee in person and explains essentially that Sony has not made much progress in neither identifying the culprits responsible for the security breach nor figuring out for sure whether or not credit card data of users was compromised. Says Hirai:
"We have not yet identified the individual or individuals responsible for the actual intrusion and breach into our systems. We are continuing to work with the FBI to apprehend those responsible."
Elsewhere in the letter, Hirai says Sony has not recovered "forensic or circumstantial" evidence of credit card information being stolen from PlayStation Network.
Meanwhile, Gamasutra reports that Sony Network Entertainment president Tim Schaff will appear before the subcommittee next week to answer questions about the security breach. It's good that Sony is taking that step. Let's hope he has some more substantial answers by then.
i would hope they find that ***.
i feel sony is maning up to congress for the breach of their products.
We need to butcher these Cyber Cunts! Butcher them I say!!!
I think that while what these hackers did was wrong, Sony should face up to their problems and come clean and just face their short comings. :)
that's probably why it took so long to restore
Man its really going to be bad if it turns out they did get CC info.
If the FBI is helping work on this and still no one has found the people responsible, doesn't that spell trouble for the virtual defense of our nation's infrastructure?
well you know who they are (tagname wise) identify those f*ckers
