What started as an outage, to a hack, is now a complete and total disaster for Sony. Yep, the PlayStation Network (PSN) wasn’t just taken offline or hacked your personal information on there has been compromised as well—Sony admits utter PSN failure: your personal data has been stolen.
Options? Few and far between:
- Watch your email for spam/phishing, etc.
- Watch your credit cards for fraud (since credit cards were stolen)
- Monitor your credit reports for identity theft
- Change passwords if you used the same one for other services
I have a PS3 and signed up for PSN too. There were demo games that I wanted to try so …
- Did I use my real birthday or a “close enough” birthday?
- Which secret question/answer pairs did I use?
- Since I had to type the password in on my PS3, I didn’t use a random password, I know I didn’t use one that was used for other things, but…
Yeah not cool.
Makes Sony’s whole stink over people jailbreaking PS3s kinda pointless doesn’t it?
