Sony announced that it has locked 93,000 online network user accounts because of an unusual amount of sign-in attempts from an unauthorized user, AFP reports. The suspicious activity reportedly took place between October 7 and 10 and verified user IDs and passwords. The company said that the incidents "appear to include a large amount of data obtained from one or more compromised lists from other companies, sites or sources," and "only a small fraction of the 93,000 accounts showed additional activity prior to being locked." Sony is continuing an investigation into the breaches and has notified affected users.
