Sony Tells House Committee its Files are Legion

| | Comments (0)
PlayStation 3Sony's network problems aren't getting any better. The PlayStation Network is still down, and it's come to light that there was also significant data theft at Sony Online Entertainment, shutting down the subsidiary's massively multiplayer online games. Of course, the lawsuits are getting underway, and all the while gamers still can't do anything involving online connected features (which is just about everything).

The U.S. House of Representatives' Committee on Energy and Commerce is even holding a hearing on "The Threat of Data Theft to American Consumers." Kazuo Hirai, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Sony Computer Entertainment America submitted written answers to the Committee's questions. Mostly, Sony presented platitudes, saying that Sony reacted to the situation carefully and cautiously and focusing on the general need for protecting personal data throughout the Internet. Interestingly, Sony claimed it found a file on a Sony Online Entertainment server "named 'Anonymous' with the words 'We are Legion.'" So, Sony still believes Anonymous is responsible, and has told the Committee on Energy and Commerce so.
