Sony PSN Update Confirms Personal Information Compromised

For all of you Sony PlayStation fans that have been following our articles about the outage that the PSN is currently experiencing you may have already read that they are having to completely re-build the infrastructure, that there are regular updates coming from the PS blog and that the cause was an external intrusion.

We have just read the latest Sony PSN Update where they confirm that personal information could have been compromised. The first thing that pure gamers will want to know is that the netowork isn’t back up yet, but they give us hope by saying that there’s an expectancy of the services resuming within a week. We are starting to get hints of answers to some questions that we asked previously around credit/debit card details used on the network from our personal profiles.

Sony has released its longest update so far with quite a bit of information or so it seems until you start reading it. To us it still seems like Sony doesn’t know exactly what information the hackers could have had access to as they say passwords and security answers ‘MAY’ have been obtained and they also say that there is no evidence to say these details have been pinched but they aren’t taking any chances.

Sony are preparing an e-mail with full details of what could have been obtained during the invasion of their system so if you want a quick preview of what they are preparing head over to the PlayStation blog. They have plenty of legal information and advice on protecting yourself so make sure you have a really good look at it and understand it all because this could end up being very important.

Are you pleased that Sony has come clean and informed us of data that could have been swiped? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
