Angry PSN member sues Sony for keeping data breach under wraps
Kristopher Jones, an angry PlayStation Network (PSN) member from Alabama, sued Sony on April 27 for keeping the PlayStation breach under wraps.
On April 19, Sony discovered hacking attack against PlayStation and shut down the online videogame service to probe the breach and to thwart any future attacks. But, the Japanese firm did not inform any of its customers regarding the data breach until April 26.
Sony’s social media director Patrick Seybold said, “There’s a difference in timing between when we identified there was an intrusion and when we learned of consumers’ data being compromised.”
However, Sony lately admitted that that hack left as many as 77 million users vulnerable to theft of personal data such as credit card information.
The lawsuit filed in the US District Court for the North District of California accuses the Japanese electronics giant of breach of warranty, violations of consumers’ rights of privacy and negligent data security.
