On April 2nd, Toronto-based law firm McPhadden Samac Tuovi LLP filed a $1 billion class action lawsuit against Sony Entertainment and its associated companies. Sony is being accused of breaching the privacy of millions of customers, after a hacker scrapped credit card information from the company’s servers.
Last week, Sony reported that the personal information of 77 million users on their network had been compromised by a hacker attack. Just two days later, they announced that the initial number was incorrect; instead, 102 million users were victims of the attack. The information that was hacked includes credit card numbers, addresses, user names and any other contact info.
The law suit was initially launched by Natasha Maksimovic, a 21-year-old PSN customer. She stated that she was outraged by the week’s events and feels that she has been cheated by the company.
“It appears to me that Sony focuses more on protecting its games than its Playstation users”, she says.
Sony has shut down its network and launched an investigation into the matter. A term of experts from the FBI and Cyber Security detectives will work together to get to the bottom of the issue.
