Sony Faces Lawsuit Over Neglected Security
As the PlayStation Network recovers from back-to-back hacker attacks, Sony will face a lawsuit filed by three men alleging Sony was well aware of the inadequacy of its security system. According to a Reuters report, the litigation was filed earlier this week in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California.
The plaintiffs alleged that while Sony spends "lavishly" on the security of development servers and intellectual property, they failed to safeguard the interests of customers by not securing their sensitive personal data.
The three said, Sony fired "a significant number of employees immediately before the security breach," in order to cut costs.
