Even the firsts rumors about misuse and fraudes are circulating in internet. So, be careful with your credit card information, and check your bank account frequently.

How comes the passwords went out? Were they stored in clear? A php beginner wouldn’t do that kind of mistake!

Credit card information stolen? How is that even possible, this information is supposed to be encrypted. I work for a company that accepts online payments, no employee can access the credit card information once it is stored. There are very precise contracts about such security with Visa and Mastercard, and let me know that if Credit Card information leaked from Sony, Visa is going to ask them to pay for that, and explain their security mistakes. If things go really bad, I also think governments might ask Sony to give explanations.

So no, when I give my Credit card information to a respected company, I assume some of my private information might leak in case of a hack such as my address and my birthday, but not my password or my credit card information. The fact that they announced that it might be possible people have had this information really makes me wonder about their security systems, and how they actually handle people’s privacy.

If a hacker could get my credit card info and my password, how can I be sure that a Sony employee didn’t access this information too? This shouldn’t even be a possibility.

No need to be sherlock holmes to figure this is a consecuense of all the Sony hating annonymous (group) fueled that time.

If they said there was an attack then it should be true. Your comment just fuels all the conspiracy theorist out there and the Sony hating. You are the one creating fear like a politician.

I’m sure you give your info to Sony knowing this can happen (because you know about security stuff). Just don’t blame them for the hating, I’m pretty sure the dumb idiots who stole all that info are not going to be able to use it anyways. Now you and all people are informed and can take measurements, and something tells me the ones taking the info don’t know what they have in their hands or if they use that info they can be found more easy.
