C|Net is reporting that Sony is considering offering a reward for information leading to those hackers responsible for breaking into its PlayStation Network and Sony Online Entertainment networks that lead to both services being taken down nearly two weeks ago. According to the report, the company has been kicking around the idea of a reward for a while, but has not yet come to a final decision on the matter. Apparently, they are still weighing the pros and cons of offering such reward. If they do agree on it, the report claims, it will be brought before the company’s top executives for approval.
CNET’s report adds that any reward would have to be offered in cooperation with various law enforcement agencies around the world investigating the security breach including the FBI.
Sony has not publicly commented on this story.
