Privacy Commissioner Allan Chiang Yam-wang said the global hacking of Sony's PlayStation Network had involved about 400,000 Hong Kong accounts. He urged Sony to provide a detailed account of the incident, as well as its data security measures, for the privacy watchdog's investigation within three days. No Hong Kong users had reported any losses as of yesterday. His comments came after he met Katsuhiko Murase, of Sony Hong Kong, yesterday.
