Might be prudent for any of you PS3/PSN users that used a credit card to buy things through PSN to contact your card issuer and get it canceled and a new card issued. Whether it has really has started happening or not, I have seen a few reports elsewhere of some having odd charges showing up on their CC already.

This is Sony after all. How long did it take them to admit to the rootkit fiasco a few years ago? Sony's motto seems to be ignore it and hope no one notices, and when that fails start spinning for all they are worth.

lol they got sued

Sony slapped with a class action lawsuit over PSN security breach

It was really only a matter of time, and here it is – Sony has been hit with a federal class action lawsuit over the recent PlayStation Network security breach, which has potentially resulted in some 77 million compromised PSN IDs.

Filed by one 36-year old Kristopher Johns of Alabama via Rothken Law Firm, and on behalf of 77 million others, the litigation alleges that Sony failed “to maintain adequate computer data security of consumer personal data and financial data," and to take "reasonable care to protect, encrypt, and secure the private and sensitive data of its users”, and that the company’s delay in informing customers of the real problem precluded those customers from making “an informed decision as to whether to change credit card numbers, close the exposed accounts, check their credit reports, or take other mitigating actions."

The suit is seeking a number of otherwise unspecified damages against Sony.

Rothken’s co-counsel J.R. Parker said in a statement, "Sony's breach of its customers' trust is staggering. Sony promised its customers that their information would be kept private. One would think that a large multinational corporation like Sony has strong protective measures in place to prevent the unauthorized disclosure of personal information, including credit card information. Apparently, Sony doesn't."

Seems the U.S. government is taking a small interest in this,

A House of Representatives subcommittee sent a letter to Sony on Friday asking for information about the attack on the Sony Playstation Network by hackers last week. The gaming network has 77 million registered users.

The letter, which was addressed to Mr. Kazuo Hirai, chairman of Sony, asked the company to answer a detailed list of questions related to the intrusion. It wants a reply by May 6.

Read rest of story here. Looks like this is about as bad as it can get. If you have an account on there I recommend password changes to anywhere you may have reused it, probably give your CC company a ring too.
