Sony admits payment card details of 77 million users may be stolen

Posted on Wednesday, April 27 2011 @ 11:55:38 CEST by


Sony's PlayStation Network is down for the seventh day in a row but the story takes a new spin as the company has admitted that the closure was due to the theft of personal information. Stolen data includes names, addresses, logins, passwords, password security answers, e-mail addresses, and birth days. Additionally, credit card details of the network's 77 million users may also be compromised.
The stolen information included names, addresses, login and password credentials, password security answers, email addresses and birth dates. Credit card details may also have been compromised along with user purchase histories.

“While there is no evidence at this time that credit card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility,” Patrick Seybold, senior director of corporate communications and social media, wrote on the company blog. The message was also emailed to account holders.

The breach may also impact juveniles as PSN account holders can authorise a “sub-account” for dependents. Account details belonging to those dependents were also breached, Sony said.
