The hackers of the Playstation Network are still at large and unknown.

The Sony Playstation Network is still offline and this week we also reported that the hackers also got the accounts of SOE. For now Sony has not yet made any announcements on who is behind the attack. Today Reuters reports that Sony has hired security firms Data Forte and Guidance Software to hunt for the hackers. Data Forte is led by a former Naval Criminal Investigative Service special agent. Both forms work with FBI agents that are also looking into this incident.

It looks like this is not an easy task as already two weeks passed since Sony made the security preach public.

There is still no real clarity if credit card data was really stolen. Sony has not confirmed it and says that credit card data was encrypted.
