TOKYO- Sony Chief Executive Officer Howard Stringer apologized to users of the firm's PlayStation Network and other online services, breaking his silence on the biggest Internet security break-in ever, but failed to provide a date when services would resume.

Stringer's comments come after he faced criticism of his leadership since Sony revealed hackers had compromised the data of more than 100 million accounts used for accessing games and music over the Internet.

"As a company we - and I - apologize for the inconvenience and concern caused by this attack," Stringer said in comments posted on Sony's US PlayStation blog late on Thursday.
