New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has put Sony Computer Entertainment America, Sony Network Entertainment and Sony Online Entertainment on the rack over the data breach.
The New York Times is reporting that Schneidermanâ€™s office has issued a subpoena to Sony to explain the PlayStation Network data breach. The subpoena is part of a consumer protection inquiry, and asks Sony to explain what it told its customers about security on its networks.
Sony has also suffered criticism from various members of Congress over both the attack and its response to it. California representative Mary Bono Mack, who chaired a congressional subcommittee hearing into the events, accused the company of putting the burden on consumers to search for information about the breaches, â€œrather than accepting the burden of notifying themâ€?.
