If they do really have our info. I BET you theyre not gonna get at least 1 mil card numbers used. So we should be glad because the chances of your info being stolen is about 1 in 70,000,000

Good point. And with the fact that NeoGoof concern trolls know they can get this site's attention though random, no-name posts, it wouldn't surprise me to see them using this site as an outlet to spread BS.

There's an equal chance that these random persons are legit or fake.
And I think we can all agree that we hope this fake, for everyone's sake.

NO ONE has officially confirmed leaked info, including CC info. Sony has stated that it is a serious concern/possibility, though.

So let's be logical here. Thousands, maybe millions (Don't know the stats), lose their info. Out of 70 million accounts, the chance of coincidence that one will lose some data in some manner, just as likely from an unrelated source, is pretty high. Add in the chance of concern trolls, and the chance of these reports both being correct AND legit become slim.

You think this is bad; when PSN is back up with a new firmware update, we will still have to endure the, "firmware 3.xx bricked my PS3" articles!

"So 3 people so far."

no. 2.

and there's no proof yet that any CC information was compromised. even the official blog says that information *might* have been (which proceeds to say that CC info isn't believed, at this point, to be compromised).

and their information could have been compromised somewhere else.

this blog post is nothing more than baseless conjecture and the situation seems all too circumstantial.

Sony said that credit info wasn't stolen, if it was that would seriously come back on them 2X more than if they admitted it.

I'm guessing Credit info is stored on a more secure separate servers?

Maybe this is where the cut costs come into play with the free Network?

We still don't know if any credit card info was taken off PSN. Given the huge number of accounts on PSN there would likely be a bunch of people finding fraud on their cards even before the security breach. It happens all the time so the odds would be small that no one from with a PSN account is hit for a whole week. I'm not saying they didn't get the info from PSN but it's far too early to tell.

I've had a number of mysterious charges on credit card accounts over the years and it's never cost me a dime. I just call the credit card company and the charges magically go away.

Even if they do charge you I think visa limits your liability to $50. Don't remember whether Mstercard does the same thing.
zag  +   1623d ago
You mean 3 people who have sent an email to a game site.

There could be far far many more but haven't said anything to anyone.

I wonder if all the people who wanted the PSN hacked really wanted it hacked now, and Anon will be 100% chased down now.

A few people have said this could be something else even I have, and many don't care but you don't need the credit card data as you can start to social media data mine the names and addresses to gain enough data to get your own credit cards made up under those people's IDs.

So even if you've never had a credit card you could suddenly apply for one and never know it.

Of cause you;d have to pay all the bills racked up on that card as there'd be no fraud done as everything will be checked out and be ok'd so you'd be up for the bill if there's one.

That $50 liability means fuck all, as you have to prove you didn't spend the money and many banks will have you pay the bill first then settle the matter later.

All rumors should be considered false until proven true. Remember all the other fake crap that's been posted over the last few days.

"PSN will be up Monday! Some source claims."
"No, wait! It'll be on Tuesday!"
"Actually, it'll be Wednesday! We're sure this time!"

"It was because hackers DDOSed the servers!"
"No, wait, it was Anonymous!"
"WAIT A MINUTE, actually Sony shut them off because of credit cards getting stolen!"

I mean come on, this is just ridiculous.

Since you pay nothing for PSN then I guess you get nothing...no wait you get HACKED and your CC information spread to the far reaches of the galaxy. PSN yeah OK.

My bros account got hit this weekend too. They only were able to get around $150.00 before his security called him to notify. Sucks. I erase my card after every time I use it on PSN. I hope I don't get f#cked with.

In other words, no more than would have had this happen to them on any normal day. Far less actually.

On a side note, it sounds like these people had DEBIT cards tied to their accounts. Who does that?! ALWAYS use a credit card for online purchases, because you can contest the charges before paying them should someone get your info.

Three people isn't exactly hard evidence for it being the PSN data. Two people at my office were hit a couple of years back from going to some Taco Bell near where they lived. Not that it necessarily isn't from this, but credit card theft is rather more common than we'd all like.
MAiKU  +   1623d ago
I think the chances of my money getting stolen are the same of my ps3 going dead with the yellow light.

3 people? 2 of which with the same amount stolen? I don't think someone would leave such an obvious trail by taking out similar transactions.

take it with a grain of salt anyway. I ordered a new card like most should do, if you gave psn your card number i urge you to call your bank for a new one.

FAKE people this is internet remember stop going app over everything you read. The 3 digit codes were not taken according to sony which renders the card numbers useless. Anon also I would hope would not screw them selves like that. Anyways still no confirmed transactions yet. and again even if they do visa would catch it most likely I work for a bank and one time I bought a bike legitimately and 2 seconds after walking in the door my bank called me as they felt that transaction was suspicious. If you card is being used anywhere other then your home town they will ask questions after something like this.
MrBeatdown  +   1623d ago
A couple people out of 70 million is nothing to get wound up over. Nothing suggests it is anything more than a coincidence. This happens every day, even to people who don't have PSN accounts.

When you have a group that large, you can probably pick out a few who have explosive diarrhea as well. It doesn't mean the PSN outage gives you the craps.

Keep in mind, Sony said they didn't have any evidence credit card information was stolen, unlike the other data. They were just alerting people to the possibility.


Buying what? Basic logic?

@evrfighter (again)

No, basic logic is understanding probability and realizing that the odds suggest that this is nothing more than a coincidence.


Sure. It doesn't change my point though. Even if you assume each person has two accounts, it's still just a couple people reporting problems out of 35,000,000.


I didn't say "it hasn't happened to me so its not a problem" or anything remotely close to that. Reading comprehension FTW.

What I said was that a couple people out of millions and millions does not indicate any kind of connection what so ever, since identity theft happens every day. It's a pretty simple concept to grasp. Or, at least, it should be. Google the odds of identity theft. The first result... 1 in 18. This is not exactly rocket science to realize the two probably aren't connected.

Red_Phoenix  +   1623d ago
@grzajabarkus, people have different accounts usually to get the free stuff that different psn stores offer. If you get a Japanese psn, you will see the amount of free stuff they get through their psn store. Also, some people have multiple psn names for family. Another reason would to have a professional account and another "just for fun" account. Take Starcraft II for example, higher league players have multiple accounts because on one they use professional to ladder and tournament with, while with the other they use to practice new strategies without having to worry about their stats suffering if the strat fails.

Easier to sell the CC info and cash in instantly. Still doesn't remove the fact that now 2 people have your CC info.

I agree. I laugh at how some people take to defending Sony as if them and Sony are best friends. Now is the time to come together as a gaming community and spread the word to other gamers to keep a close eye on their personal affairs. It's cool to like a certain system of choice but it's not cool to be a blind dumb ass. The comments of it's not a big deal you bank will cover it or they only said it's possible so no need to worry are excuses. People have families or are single and work hard for their money, the possibility of have your info leaked for any reason is unacceptable. I like Sony just as much as the next person but let's collectively pull our head out of our 4th point of contact and educate other gamers instead of trying to defend a company that already has your money and possibly leaves you to loose more with this situation.

Time for a simple lesson in statistics, people.

OK...TENS of MILLIONS of people use PSN. 77,000,000 between PSN and Qriosity.

Even if this hack had not occurred, statistically many of them would have been victims of credit card fraud, completely independent of PSN. 10% of all Americans have been victims of credit card fraud, and over 11 MILLION are victims of identity theft every year. So a handful of people out of the tens of millions of PSN subscribers isn't really significant.

All that's happening is that now these people are ASSUMING it's because of PSN. It's the classic error of assuming correlation equals causation.

Now, if over the next few days, we start hearing about this happening to, say, tens of thousands of PSN users, THEN there will be some semblance of statistical significance and these hackers will become suspects. I'm not ready to put them against the wall for this one just yet.

We should not rule out this being a coincidence so soon.

However as usual everyone with a PSN account with card details should cancel their current card ASAP. Even so many banks have fraud protection and will inform you if anything suspicious is happening on your account. They will also refund money as soon as they can without much pain.

How much you betting this is fake? I believe its fake and an attempt to put sony down. Seriously, why did nobody report this before when the rumour was initially spreading about leaked info? FAKE till hard evidence.
jack_burt0n  +   1623d ago
Careful once you go down the rabbit hole, seriously this whole thing is corporate warfare.
jimbone79  +   1623d ago
Fake? Sorry homie this is as real as it gets.
Mr_cheese  +   1623d ago

Mr_cheese  +   1623d ago

TKCMuzzer  +   1623d ago
I should imagine that is stored on Netflix servers, not Sonny's.
sonnyz  +   1623d ago
Ya it's not stored on my server.

You know being a Europe PS3 owner I'm actually pretty calm about the PSN going down, I think I've just gotten used to it since SCEE treat Europe like shit most the time when it comes to pretty much eveything....enquiries, infomation, Collector editions, our PSN store, PS1 classics

I doubt this is real aswell, just making the situation look worse...stiring things

The old saying stands firm . . 'you get what you pay for'. A free service is always going to be done on a shoe string budget. Looks like the security servers were too.

My cc details are old and invalid that Sony hold, thankfully!!

Actually there was an article yesterday before the update about a guy who got 600 bucks stolen from his account but n4g deleted it. True story

Anonymous... How to steal money and still have supporters. How to lie and pretend their doing this for the community. Strike one for free speech. Hackers, pirates... no thieves. Thats what the are.
blackburn5  +   1623d ago
Strange how Sony and another tech company haven't even figured if credit card data has been taken and yet supposedly lots of PSN users are reporting hundreds of dollars being stolen from them. I have only heard about 2 people claim that. So where did the other people suddenly come from? @ MrBeatdown. Logic to a mob is pointless. Don't even bother @ Codeman420. Yeah isn't it strange that the minute Sony says credit card numbers MIGHT be compromised suddenly it's tons of people losing money?

I need to get me another ps3, my lil bro just practically took mines and hasn't returned it. Damn and there i was having fun with mk and socom 4, i might order a white one from play asia before infamous 2 arrives that and motorstorm i cant wait for.
Darkseeker  +   1623d ago
How can they have money taken from their debit card when you can't link a debit card on PSN? Only thing you can link is a credit card. When someone get your credit card number and use it, it's not withdrawal, it's just credit, you don't even need to pay if it's fraud, so nothing will happen to your bank account unless you don't report the fraud and you actually pay for it.

Those people who got money taken from their debit card likely got their card along with PIN number cloned somewhere.

You can use a debit card with PSN, I assure you. The one I have use(d) for psn is a debit card.
skyblue14213  +   1622d ago
Hmm thats funny because I have only used my debit card on psn to make purchases since I bought the metal gear solid 4 version ps3 on launch day(for that particular version), so I don't know what you are talking about?.
gamingisnotacrime  +   1623d ago
a whole week and nothing, but as soon as Sony makes it official that CC info was at risk everyone has been suffering of fraud.

just lol
STRYFEE  +   1623d ago
Lol at all these hole in the wall wannabe game sites reporting on this PSN issue. No body has heard of any of these sites but supposedly gamers are reporting to them. Give me a break.
beavis4play  +   1623d ago
agreed. and, who in the hell links their bank account with anything? that's so idiotic it can't be true.
Scyrus  +   1623d ago
wtf? i didnt read the article, but linked bank accounts? that doesnt even make sense, i mean, u can only get ur credit card on thier so im sure people are lying. i mean its possible they arent lying, but its more possible they are just trying to take advantage of the situation
Dagobert  +   1623d ago
Well a lot of people do who don't have credit cards and are too lazy to get one. It may be stupid but it's true.
Mike_Tha_Hero  +   1623d ago
What kind of bullshit stance is this? They're gamers JUST like the people who frequent IGN and Gamespot. In your mind, if news isn't reported from a 'big-name' gaming site, it fails to be valid.

I swear this is why gamers are so diluted in this generation, the things they pick and choose to believe and not believe is complete crap.
