PlayStation accounts possibly breached by hackers again
TOKYO (AP) - Sony says it's detected a large number of unauthorized attempts to access user accounts on its PlayStation Network and other online entertainment services.
Sony says it's temporarily locked about 93,000 accounts whose IDs and passwords were successfully verified by the attempts. The company has sent email notifications and password reset procedures to those customers.
Sony says credit card numbers linked to the compromised accounts are not at risk, and that it's "taken steps to mitigate the activity."
The incidents follow an embarrassing data breach earlier this year, which compromised personal data from more than 100 million online gaming and entertainment accounts.
