People seem surprised at the fact that data was stolen, or may have been stolen, from PSN as a result of the recent attack. Should they be? My thoughts on this topic.
No cuz it can happen to any company.
no thats why i didn't put my CC info on psn. I knew this stuff happens and with psn cards it was unnecessary to do so. I hope steam releases some cards so i can buy some games.
its happened to MS, with xbox live, its happened to tj maxx, its happened to well, almost everyone, its just that it hasnt happened to sony and now that it finally has everyone is making a huge deal about it
@Scyrus exactly dude.. the only reason it's being made such a huge thing is because it's the biggest hack on a console network so of course they can get a tonne of stories and hits out of over reacting to the situation.
Not really, it happened to Mastercard, NASA, MOD.
surprised to see this article. Haven't seen one like this for a whole two minutes and I was getting a little worried....
Damn, you beat me to the insult, I was going to say the same thing lol
Well then it's good someone posted it right? =)
This happens all the time to various companies, like Pintheshadows said. It's just easy publicity and now people are taking the opportunity to jump on the bandwagon and attack PSN. One of my Xbox friends lost all of his account info to a MW2 hacker, so this shit can happen to any system.
morons don't know this jack. they just ride the hate tide with the gust of wind called ignorance
it does happen all the time and it can happen to any company... im surprised that not enough hackers get caught though...
I'm starting to worry about my trophies.
Don't, Sony said that they are safe along with wallet funds. Just to add, if NASA can get hacked by one guy with ADHD then anyone can.
fortget the personal info and CC# my trophies are more important I hope they safe.
if you haven't done anything to your system the trophies would sync even if all the trophies were removed so no worries there.
just to be safe anything using the same email as my psn had to be changed today. which was pretty much what i was doing. i did call my bank and told them about the situation of what happen. i was the 4th one to call the bank about this. looks like i aint the only one worried.
With the security they had, I am not surprised one bit. I mean, nothing was encrypted at all. Even security in the 1990 was better then this.
