Claims of another PSN security breach are false, with all personal information on the service remaining secure, Sony has confirmed.

Last night someone claiming to be a member of Anonymous posted what was alleged to be information obtained from 50GB of compromised PSN data, but it turned out the data was the same as that released last year when PSN was hacked.

"We've confirmed that the recent claim that PlayStation Network was illegally hacked and that customer passwords and email addresses were accessed is completely false," assured Sony in a statement.
