US Congress wades into PSN attack row

13 questions asked, answers demanded by end of next week.

A US Congresswoman has written to Sony demanding to know more about the recent PSN attack. The letter, sent to Sony’s Kaz Hirai from Republican Mary Bono Black, lists thirteen queries and says they just be answered by 13 May.

Questions include ‘When did you become aware of the illegal and unauthroized [sic] attack’, ‘When did you notify the appropriate authorities about the breach’ and ‘How many PlayStation Network account holders provided credit card information to Sony Computer Entertainment’?

The letter comes as Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer faces mounting pressure to quit, following a further attack on the SOE online gaming service, in which 24 million users details were exposed. That followed the revelation that 77 million PSN accounts had been compromised.
