  1. UPDATE

    Sony have now updated their blog with an official statement that the PSN has been compromised and 'in terms of possibility' (Their words) your card details may have been obtained.

    Sony have admitted that the PSN was hacked which has lead to this lengthy outage. Worryingly a Sony spokesman has now apparently stated that they are unsure if bank card details held on the PSN have been compromised.

    At the minute there is nothing to suggest that bank card details have been compromised, on the flip side there is nothing to suggest that they haven't.

    Sony remain deafeningly silent about the whole affair.

    Q.6 Does that mean all users’ information was compromised? Tell us more in details of what personal information leaked.

    In terms of possibility, yes. We believe that an unauthorized person has obtained the following information that you provided: name, address (city, state/province, zip or postal code), country, email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password, login, password security answers, and handle/PSN online ID. It is also possible that your profile data may have been obtained, including purchase history and billing address (city, state/province, zip or postal code). If you have authorized a sub-account for your dependent, the same data with respect to your dependent may have been obtained. If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, it is possible that your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may also have been obtained.
