The hack occurred right around the time of the Sony PlayStation Network hack from last year. In that hack, the information of some 77 million users globally was stolen.
Although the hack was discovered a few weeks after the PSN hack, it wasn't confirmed by a Sony rep until Saturday. After all, the hack didn't affect any consumers. At least, however, the accused miscreants have been caught.
The two men, James Marks, 26, from Daventry in Northamptonshire, and James McCormick, 25, from Blackpool, appeared in court on Friday. Both denied charges issued under the Computer Misuse Act and the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act at Leicester crown court. Amazingly, though, the case won't go to trial until January 2013.
It's unclear if any of the tracks have made their way onto the open Internet.
