Sony CEO asked to step down by shareholders
The CEO of Sony, Howard Stringer has been asked to step down by shareholders at the latest shareholder meeting.
According to a report on Reuters, Stringer was asked by one shareholder at the meeting to step down when taking questions at the meeting. He washed over the question with comments about the security breach.
Stringer said: "We believe that we first became the subject of attack because we tried to protect our IP, our content, in this case video games."
He continued: "I think you see that cyber-terrorism is now a global force, affecting many more companies than just Sony. If hackers can hack Citibank, the FBI and the CIA, and yesterday the video game company Electronics Arts, then it's a negative situation that governments may have to resolve."
PSN services have resumed almost everywhere with Japan now the only country still without any access to the network as yet.
