Sony Said to Be Subpoenaed by New York Over Data Breaches

Sony Corp. was subpoenaed by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman over data breaches of its PlayStation Network and Sony Online unit, and representations made to customers, a person familiar with the probe said.

The subpoenas follow the company’s statement that it was attacked by computer hackers between April 16 and April 19. Tokyo-based Sony said May 2 that the attack on its PlayStation Network and Qriocity online music and film service in mid-April also gave hackers access to data from Sony Online Entertainment, a separate unit that makes role-playing games.
