New York’s attorney general , Eric Schneiderman, has issued a subpoena to Sony Computer Entertainment America, Sony Network Entertainment and Sony Online Entertainment, requesting information regarding how Sony protects its customers personal information.

The subpoena comes after Sony’s servers were breached between April 16 to April 19, 2011, exposing the private and personal information of more than 101 million customers.

Rumors in online hacker forums say Sony’s servers were outdated and security was not tight enough. Since the attacks, Sony stock had dropped 4.5 percent on the Tokyo exchange, its lowest level in more than a month.

An email from Patrick Seybold, Sony’s senior director for corporate communications, said  that Sony “ will review and respond to this request, and will continue to work with law enforcement authorities as they investigate the criminal attack on our networks.”

After what is being called the biggest breach in gaming history, Sony is being questioned by the U.S. Congress, foreign countries and is seeing lawsuits filed by individuals regarding not only the intrusion but how they handled the breach and how they are going to protect their customers going forward.

Sony is reportedly in the final stages of testing before restarting the network, which has been shut down since the attacks. disclaimer: This article: New York Subpoenas Sony Over Network Breach was posted on Friday, May 6th, 2011 at 8:09 pm at and is filed under Fraud Lawsuits.
