    Sony locks 93,000 online accounts after security breach

    Sony has locked around 93,000 accounts on its PlayStation Network and SOE games service after unauthorised sign-in attempts.

    Unknown attackers managed to verify members' IDs and passwords, although credit card details were not at risk, it said.

    Sony suggested that the information may have been stolen from other companies, but did not elaborate.
    The Japanese firm has suffered numerous security lapses over the past year.

    In one of the worst incidents, details of 77,000 PlayStation Network (PSN) users were compromised.

    In a statement on its website, the electronics giant said that "less than one tenth of one percent" of users across the three networks may have been affected in the latest incident, which took place between 7 and 10 October.
