you know why PSN is down?

the security hole allowed hackers to get access to credit card and personal information.

Sony UK is shedding more light on just what data has been exposed, and frankly we were happier when it was dark. By the sound of things, everything Sony had about you has been accessed. There's a full list after the break, so only click on through if you dare.



So in other words if you have PSN+ or have used your credit card on PSN, you may want to cancel the card and request a new one.

edit/
Heres the list of what has been compromised, doesnt seem as though credit card info is on it. however yours to guess.

the only way i can comprehend somebody doing something horrible like this is if they were sociopaths or if they plan on donating all this stolen money to charity.

no, forget the latter.

although, with Steam being ported to PS3 (dunno why, since it would be so much better on Xbox) they may yet be viable.

This has got nothing to do with Live, remember that Geoholtz guy everyone gave money to after Sony tried to sue him after he jailbreaked the PS3? Well I'm guessing this is what happens when you a give a hacker lots of money to fight a company when he knows their system in and out.

Why would one need credit card info on PSN?

'this is why you get an xbox'

RROD is a cause of the xbox's creators, this is a cause of the ps3's evil genius community.

This. And it's funny when people are saying that they don't have money stolen on XBL, when they've been basically robbed for years of what should be free.

Thats true, PC is ftw.

No one has stolen from me through Steam yet

other than Steam themselves, £39.99 for MW2? getting your backdoor kicked in.


someone did find a way around the MS Points system, but Microsoft closed the gap in a matter of hours.

not still trying to find a solution after a week

I use store bought gift cards for all points and gold-membership


and microsofts security on xbox-live is intense. have you ever seen a hack on live? i havnt.

I cant personally say ive seen it as ive only used PSN a few times, but ive heard from comments on engadget that hacking on PSN is far more common (game hacks while online) since you can cover your PS's hardware code,

while on live if you get caught you are instabanned.

I can only assume that the reason that the hackers did not hack into xbox live instead is because xbox live is a more secure network because more people would have credit card info on xbox live, and i think more people use it.

When people pay for Xbox live, that $50 also includes the cost of protection of their vital information...Playstation is free and from an economics view does not have the same level of security. This is all conjecture, but i think it is well based nonetheless.

well

either get PSN for free and get hacks/weeks of downtime etc

or pay for XBL Gold and get 100% (near enough) annual uptime?lol

Pay for servers -> better maintenance on said servers -> also owned by Microsoft who know a bit about servers really.

This is blown out of the water guys

Sony stated the possibility exists


And nothing else
They say that just to cover their asses incase it happened

It probably didn't

The hackers are hacking Sony. They have a vendetta against Sony, not you.

Depends on who is doing hte hacking,

if its Geohotz and his supporters, it is likely to prove a point.

If its a hacker looking for money then its about getting credit card info and cashing in.
