Sony Sued Over PlayStation Network Data Breach

2011 started as a nightmare for Sony, they faced many major issues from the start of this year and recently they are dealing with their PlayStation network breach. However Sony have admitted yesterday that its PlayStation Network was breached and hackers might have stolen user’s personal details and even the credit card numbers, but we are sure nobody will be surprised to hear if someone still want to sue Sony.

The sue case was filed today on behalf of Kristopher Johns, 36, of Birmingham, Ala., in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. Johns accuses Sony of not taking “reasonable care to protect, encrypt, and secure the private and sensitive data of its users.” He also believes Sony took too long to notify him and other customers that their personal information had been exposed.

The Sony gaming network was taken offline almost a week ago to prevent more data loss, and yesterday they announced the severity of lost data taken by hackers. They admitted that Names, addresses, birthdays and similar data was compromised although Sony isn’t yet sure whether card information was also taken or not. But they also recommended their users to keep an eye on their credit card statements.

With this recent Sony network breach we have to see how long it will take to gain trust of users again. Stay tuned as we will update you with any further development in this matter.
