Update on PSN

Just my luck. Yesterday I posted how i got scared about the rumors behind the closed PSN. Just after I published that post I looked at the latest news and found this. I'll summarize what was announced.

Sony admits that user accounts were hacked and personal information stolen. This information includes:
  • "name, address (city, state/province, zip or postal code), country, email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity passwords and login, and handle/PSN online ID."
 Also possibly stolen:
  • "profile data, including purchase history and billing address (city, state, zip), and your PlayStation Network/Qriocity password security answers."
And last but not least:
  • "If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, to be on the safe side we are advising you that your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may also have been obtained."
You f*cking hackers!

I really don't mind so much if someone knows my birthday and now that my password isn't the same anymore on most sites I'm not so worry about that either, but what I don't like is if my credit card number is out there for someone else to use. Although security code should be safe this still gives me the chills. Well at least for now my credit account looks normal.

This was just a small update to my yesterdays post. It just was so odd coincidence that at the same time when I'm writing how I got scared about the possible account breaches, because of the past experience, Sony announces that the user information has indeed been stolen. Just my luck.

My face when I read the news.

  22. Sony brought that on themselves, it's been known for long that all this data is not safe, they did nothing about it anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sony stored the data in unencrypted files. They were literally asking for it, you should be mad at them, not the hackers :O

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've said it many times and I'll say it again: It's terrible that Sony didn't have better defences up when they're storing thousands and thousands of people's private data.
