I don't care if it was compromised or not, Sony should have told us right away that it MIGHT have been compromised so that each and every person
could take the precautions they found necessary.
By not telling us anything at all, Sony don't treat us as adults that can think and act appropriately to the situation.
What if hypothetically my credit card was emptied at the 5th day after the hack, I could have taken the appropriate precautions necessary to avoid
that, given that I got the information needed from Sony on the first or very least the second day after the attack.
Doesn't that hypothetically make Sony to blame for contributing to a third party stealing my money, by withholding necessary information, that if it
were given to me could have prevented it?
Now Sony may not have been fully aware of all the consequences of the attack until the 6th day, but just the mere SUSPICION of it should have made
them tell their paying customers about it right away, so that they could valuate the situation and take actions themselves.
I tell you what this is about - it's pride.
They avoided telling us that they were not in full control of the information we provided them because it would make them look bad.
They only told us when they had no other choice and not a minute sooner.
We are the ones that potentially ends up paying for their foolish pride with our money.
That doesn't just make them bad in customer relations, but it also (in my mind) makes them criminal themselves.
Better safe then Sony...
