A class-action lawsuit has been filed against Sony’s online gaming networks, The PlayStation Network (PSN) and Station.com.
The lawsuit claims that personal data and sensitive information, including credit card numbers, were hacked during a massive attack on both of Sony’s platforms. The attack may have affected more than 100 million of the brands’ gaming customers. In the lawsuit, confidential witnesses claim that Sony’s security was vulnerable to attack. As a result, both sites were offline for a total of 24 days, leaving millions of gamers unable to download new games or the ability to play other players online.
