More Sony Hacking

Sony reveals it has locked out over 100,000 accounts from the PlayStation Network and other online services following a spike in unauthorized login attempts, reports the New York Times. Word is: "In a statement Wednesday, Sony said it suspected that hackers had obtained login data from other Web sites or sources and used those to try to gain access to Sony accounts. Access was thought to have been gained to only a handful of accounts, and no credit card or other sensitive data were stolen, Sony said."

The PSN suffered a data breach in April that resulted in significant downtime followed by several further incidents which only seemed to end when Anonymous decided to cease the attacks. Sony has since taken further measures to protect against such breaches: Last month they amended their terms of service to disallow users from initiating class action lawsuits against them.
