It’s a lousy morning for Sony. The company has locked 93,000 PlayStation Network user accounts — including 35,000 in the U.S. — following yet another round of cyberattacks on Friday and Monday, Bloomberg reports. The company says that hackers gained data elsewhere on the Web to access the Sony customers’ accounts — but they didn’t get anything serious like credit card data. Still, some users may be concerned considering that the system had to be temporarily closed in April following similar attacks. Chairman Howard Stringer apologized for that breech. Meanwhile, Sony is offering to provide free repairs for nearly 1.6M Bravia TV sets sold since 2007. The company has discovered that a defective part involved in the LCD screen backlights could cause them to melt.
