The Australian government is planning a law in the wake of Sony's PSN hacking disaster. The new ruling is designed to force companies to disclose any privacy breaches to the public. 1,560,791 Australian accounts were caught in the mess, and officials in the country are pissed.
Privacy minister Brendan O'Connor has publicly criticized Sony, saying it was "very concerned" about the way in which the situation was handled. However, he added that other companies have been doing a bad job of protecting customer data, and everybody needs to tighten their security.
Sony insists it didn't know that details were compromised before it made the problem public, but that hasn't stopped politicians from getting pissed. Clearly, a lot of people still want answers.
