Now I find out that my credit card information may be compromised. Now that’s a nightmare.
Sony admitted today that personal information including names, birth dates, addresses, emails, logins and passwords were obtained by an “illegal intrusion” into the PlayStation Network between April 17 and 19.
Sony told it’s PlayStation Network members: “While there is no evidence at this time that credit card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility. If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, out of an abundance of caution we are advising you that your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may have been obtained.”
Reuters reported that the network’s 77 million user accounts were accessed, the largest-ever breach of its type.
