Sony warns 25m more users may be affected by hacker attack

Sony has suspended another online service just two weeks its PlayStation Network was hit by hackers.

A week after Sony admitted that the personal details of 77m PlayStation Network users could have been stolen, the company warns almost 25m more may be affected.

The company previously said it did not believe users of the Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) service had been affected by the hack, but now says investigations have revealed SOE account information may have been stolen.

Sony said the breach of the SOE data is believed to have been around the same time as a similar breach of its PlayStation Network, which was suspended on 20 April.
