    Holy shit! Do I have to call my credit card bank to cancel my card then?

    I've only done a couple purchases on PSN, but I can't believe all this information has been compromised! Didn't Sony use SSL servers to secure credit card transactions as everybody else does???

    yes, all their transactions use ssl. all of their data is also encrypted. the hacker got a hold of the data and is most likely working hard at decrypting it. i hope you all use hard passwords.

    I wonder how long the delay was between them learning this and them informing their customers.

    was talking with a freind about this. these things can affect pc users too, Microsoft live was my example but I'm sure there's a title or 2 that was ported from the ps3 to PC that had their sign in compromised as well.

    I've yet to agree to the new Rules for PSN. Can I make any legal actions?

    Unfortunately that is "Sony's Security Lipservice" and not secure socket layer as most would assume.

    Seriously, Watch any CCs or whatever you may have tied to your account. You should be doing this anyway if you do any transactions on the interwebz for anything.
    I check all my accounts at least 3 times a week to spot trouble.

    Well . . . . . .


    I can smell the lawsuits already.

    So they can steal your credit card info and then they can come to your doorstop and say hi.

    ":Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Doesn't the ToS state that your information will never be shared or comrpomised? Or something to that extent?
    I don't think they can win this one if people decide to sue them. From all the lawsuits they may end up ripping other features on new ps3 models, such as...

    1 usb port
    Wifi-B
    network adapter sold separately."

    Dang! This sucks on so many different levels I'm just barely starting to grasp it! I also check my cards online from time to time, but knowing my address and other info has also been compromised is shocking.

    Dunno if'll ever trust a console with all this information again, not that PCs are safe either, but having more control over who you're giving this information to on a PC makes you feel less vulnerable somehow.

    Gonna have to do some damage control as soon as I get back home, just checked online and that particular card seems to be in order.

    Sony should've been more forthcoming in sharing this with their users and contacted us directly, I mean, it's not like they don't spam my email with PSN crap every other day.

    I feel raped :(

    I'm glad that I had no time to enter my CC info due to the PSN being down for the past week or so.

    I guess if they get my PSN account... whatever... I can make a new one.

    Dude, if they have access to your CC number and all of your information like full name and address they can cause a lot more damage than $5!

    This is really serious :(

    I'm thinking they saved all of your information on their servers for future use once you entered your CC numbers the first time, I hope I'm wrong though.
