What the Hacker(s) of the PlayStation Network know about you…

April 26, 2011

Sony just released some more information about the intrusion that left the PlayStation Network cripple for six days and counting.

There is some very bad news for PlayStation Network Users. Here’s the list of things that have been collected by the Hacker(s):playstation-network-logo

  • Name
  • Address (city, state/province, zip or postal code)
  • Country
  • E-mail address
  • Date of birth
  • PlayStation Network/Qriocity passwords and login
  • Handle/PSN online ID

What is worse, is that the hacker(s) may also have taken credit card details. This is what Sony said about the matter in a press statement:

"While there is no evidence that credit card data was taken at this time, we cannot rule out the possibility," Mr Caplin said.

"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."

This isn’t good news at all. For anyone, not Sony nor the end-user.

What should you do? Well, I would change all my passwords immediately, and probably get my bank to send me a new credit card… That said, I’m an Xbox User and thus I’m not experiencing this problem; and I always use Xbox Live Gift Card things to buy my points and subscriptions; so they never have my bank details…
