House Subcommittee To Examine Sony Data Breach

April 29, 2011

A House subcommittee will take the first whack next week at the data breach that compromised millions of Sony PlayStation users' accounts.

The Energy and Commerce Committee's Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade Subcommittee will hold a hearing on Wednesday, following the subcommittee's top members sending Sony a letter today demanding answers about the attack.

"Given the amount and nature of personal information known to have been taken, the potential harm that could be caused if credit card information was also taken would be quite significant," wrote Chairwoman Mary Bono Mack, R-Calif., and ranking member G.K. Butterfield, D-N.C.

The Homeland Security Department has said it is working to mitigate the impact of the attack. Read more on the investigation here.
