Sony Terms Hacker Attack a ‘Hiccup,’ to Keep Internet Plans

Sony Corp. Chairman Howard Stringer said the hacker attack that crippled the company’s online entertainment services and exposed more than 100 million customer accounts was a hiccup in its Internet strategy.

“Nobody’s system is 100 percent secure,” Stringer, 69, said in a phone interview almost a month after the shutdown of the Qriocity and PlayStation Network services. “This is a hiccup in the road to a network future.”
