OpEd: The Sony PSN Security Breach - Why I'm Angry

The PSN Outage just got even more serious as, according to Kotaku, the FBI is now involved with looking into the security breach along with almost two dozen state attorneys general and possibly even the Federal Trade Commisson.

According to Darrell Foxworth, a spokesperson from the Federal Bureau of Investigations, "The FBI is aware of the reports concerning the alleged intrusion into the Sony on line game server and we have been in contact with Sony concerning this matter. We are presently reviewing the available information in an effort to determine the facts and circumstances concerning this alleged criminal activity."

The PlayStation Network has been down for over a week now due to an "unauthorized person" who accessed PSN customer personal data including their names, addresses, passwords, logins and possibly even credit card data.

Anyone with information concerning the breach is asked to contact the FBI at 858-565-1255 or 1-877-EZ-2-TELL. Cyber tips may be e-mailed to the Internet Crime Complaint Center.
