Sony's security problems continue to grow as Sony Online Entertainment  says  that the personal information of nearly 100 milion users may have been breached in a massive Internet attack that brought down the PlayStation Network late last month.

The company is currently testifying in congressional hearings on the extent of the attack.

Sony says its still not sure when their network for online multiplayer gaming will be back to normal. Check the official Playstation blog for updates directly from Sony.
