Sony-Confirms-Premium-Psn-Service-Details-Very-Soon

PlayStation Network and Qriocity completely compromised

…an unauthorized person has obtained the following information that you provided: name, address (city, state, zip), country, email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password and login, and handle/PSN online ID. It is also possible that your profile data, including purchase history and billing address (city, state, zip), and your PlayStation Network/Qriocity password security answers may have been obtained. If you have authorized a sub-account for your dependent, the same data with respect to your dependent may have been obtained. While there is no evidence at this time that credit card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility. If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, out of an abundance of caution we are advising you that your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may have been obtained.

While Sony was devoting its resources to harassing makers, tinkerers and innovators their network was completely compromised, and if you used it – all of your info is likely compromised. 75 million users, incredible. I’m pretty sure this is the largest ID theft in history.
