Massive Data Breech on PlayStation Network

Quote:
Sony has finally come clean about the "external intrusion" that has caused the company to take down the PlayStation Network service, and the news is almost as bad as it can possibly get. The hackers have all your personal information, although Sony is still unsure about whether your credit card data is safe. Everything else on file when it comes to your account is in the hands of the hackers.
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.

I use a debit card on there for my son. Now I feel kind of sick now. Just have to keep an eye on it.

MRValiant, if you want to be on the safe side, visit your bank and tell them you want a new card because of this, almost any bank would be happy to oblige.

Old news. Sony is already issuing a year of ID theft protection to PSN account holders.

Yep, I own a PS3, and its a good thing I didn't put in my real address and credit card details on my account. I preferred using PSN cards whenever I topped up for points. I just hope Sony beefs up its security, and also prevent that "warning" of another attack from "anonymous".
