Sony confirms PSN user data compromised

Posted April 27th, 2011 by GaR

Sony’s Playstation Blog has some distressing news about the security breach that has caused the now nearly week-long outage of PSN.  Personal information on PSN users has been compromised; Sony has yet to determine whether credit card info has been accessed also, saying that while there is no evidence that it has been, it cannot yet be ruled out.

See the Playstation Blog for the full press release.

Update:

A Q&A has been posted with some good info about the issue (and a few “no comment”s).

    Nintendo are only announcing the Wii successor this year.

    Sony also announced today that they’re entering the tablet market today with two products—that news has been well overshadowed.

    Sony should really offer free PlayStation Plus subscriptions after this whole debacle.

    I hope all Masher information is safe.
