PC Magazine's Lance Ulanoff, in a probing analysis of the security breach, states:
"What did Sony know and when did they know it? Those are the questions I've been asking ever since Sony revealed yesterday that not only had their popular PlayStation Network been hacked, but loads of personal data may have been accessed by "malicious" forces. This data includes full name, password, email, home address, and even purchase history. Sony initially said that credit card numbers were not part of the mix, but then basically said it couldn't guarantee that.
