Gamasutra is reporting that the Playstation Network has once again been violated by data rogues!
“Sony on Friday said it would have to further delay the return of PlayStation Network following a massive security breach, just as reports stated hackers posted personal details from a Sony database.
According to Reuters report out of Tokyo, Sony was able to remove those published details from a website, although the report didn't say exactly what website hosted the stolen information.
Personal details of some 2,500 people were posted, including names and "some addresses" that were in a 2001 database. The security breach has affected 77 million PSN and Qriocity accounts, and 24.6 million Sony Online Entertainment accounts.”
“…the personal information was on a Sony-affiliated website, which the company was unaware was accessible to people outside of Sony.
The information was made public by cyber intruders and was from a 2001 product sweepstakes contest. No credit cards, social security numbers or passwords were revealed.”
Yep, Sony just left 2,500 people’s personal information lying around forgotten. Oops! Still want to connect your Steam account to this sinking ship?
