10 Million credit cards compromised


Unbelievable but true. Sony has announced that 10 million credit cards may have been accessed by the hacker/hackers.

Mind you, that's not the personal details on their PSN account - all 77 million of those were up for grabs - that's ten million customer's credit card details. Sony has been upfront in warning everybody that credit card details have been at risk as part of the attack on the network, but this is the first time they've put a figure on the number of card holders potentially affected.

It's been confirmed that CVV2 details - which are requested as part of PSN transactions, but not stored on Sony's servers - were not obtained, but it's possible for hackers to obtain the three-digit codes (found on the back of cards) via simple brute force.

These cards are still potentially at risk, so take appropriate action to safeguard yourselves.

If anybody's card has experienced unauthorized use so far, please let your fellow Wikian gamers know!
