Sony says hackers have stolen information for users including passwords, birthdays and Credit card details


www.gameranx.com

The ball has hit the ground, and Sony dropped it. According to the most recent update by the company on the official PlayStation blog, a hacker has broken into the company's secure—or insecure—database, and obtained all user information.

"We believe that an unauthorized person has obtained the following information that you provided: name, address (city, state, zip), country, email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password and login, and handle/PSN online ID. It is also possible that your online data, including purchase history and billing address (city, state, zip) an

Unbelievable news for all Playstation users (including myself). To be fair though it was only going to be a matter of time before something like this would happen.

I am just glad that I never purchased anything on line with them and also used false e-mail addresses and D.O.B's.

Just keep an eye on your accounts (bank and PSN).

I have a toy I want everybody to put all there information in and credit card information. Also please sign up for Facebook and contact our Facebook page so we may have a list of all your friends and family and please include pictures of them all and list there birthdays. Don't worry we have a cloud. Which means its in a central database and can be accessed from anywhere.

Wake up people!!!

Whats the betting when it comes back on line (or shortly after) they will say we have to pay a subscription fee to prevent this happening in the future?

I wonder who did it?? Not anonymous apparently....maybe it was Sony?

You know, I was thinking exactly the same thing.

They have seen the money being earned through the Xbox system and now they would like a piece of the pie. Surprise sur bloody prise.

You are right. Facebook will be next, unless they start charging for the privilege of using their oh so glorious system.

Then it will be ATS!!!

I won't go over to Xbox, so if Sony start charging, then I will not be playing games on line.

No BIG loss to be fair, as I was spending far too much on there anyway.

Sony and Microsoft are not the only contenders when it comes to playing video games online.

PC's play games too ya' know.

Just sayin'.

As long as Sony walks away with a black eye, I do not care.

I hope we start seeing more and more of this where corporations start coming apart at the seams due to lack of leadership and other transgressions. What the current leadership in America and other places as well needs to realize is that if the corporation takes care of their people, the people will take care of the mission, then it is a win win for all.

If it starts happening on a weekly basis I will be pleased.

Yes, but I don't want to spend more money and the PS3 was just fine before this crap happened. I bet if I went to sell my PS3 right now it wouldn't be worth a 100 bucks.

I had an Xbox until Microsoft tried charging a prepaid card I had on the account without my consent and banned my account from Xbox Live when there was no money on it. Microsoft is even worse.

Technically, it was not worth 10 bucks the moment you walked out the store with it. They are not worth what they charge anyways, we(myself included) are stupid and buy it anyways. Think about it, the technology that are in these things is not new, its old technology that has been around for years for the most part but they charge prices as if it were some new invention. Whereas, it is just recycling of the technology(as technology like this was originally intended) and by now all R&D expenses should have been recouped. But to hear them tell it, it is all new and recently developed.

WOW! I have never heard of anything like that happening, but I truly believe it. I hate Micro$hit and everything they produce. Lets get some competition going in the PC world. Maybe if Sony decided to make their own operating system, then the world would be a much, much better place.

Some people like to pay for internet twice, it makes them feel important. Others like playing for free because $60 per game is the fee. If Sony does start charging for online, the people who bought a PS3 for free online play will know the real reason why the psn network was down even if there is a tiny element of truth that hackers brought it down.

Right now, gamers are mad at the hackers because they have taken their drug away, the gamers don't care about the reason! The hackers could have been trying to jailbreak everyones PS3 and give them free game and the gamers wouldn't care about free games if they can't play for a few days. So if Sony does start charging, they will be worse then the hackers as alot of people can't pay/afford it. Not to mention the moral issue.

It would be like all porn sites charging after a week or more without it. You can have all these immoral criminal things happening in the world, but the minute you remove free porn..."I'm horny as hell and I'm not gonna take it any more"

It does sound ridiculous, but it happened. I will never go back to Microsoft.

I wonder how many people use the same password for other accounts as well as PSN?

Some People are going to feel this harder than others. This is massive when you think about it, it does make you wonder if Microsoft could be behind it?

Found out a few days ago that my debit card was compromised and the only place I used it online was via my playstation network.

Took me for a few thousand with an authorisation to a company called The five kings family or something similar in the US. Never heard of them myself.

Thanks Sony
