"SCEA immediately enhanced its customer service protocol, implementing additional security safeguards"

i doubt that sony wud've taken this action because they'd only say something like this to try make the PSN users calm on this type of situation (jus my opinion, im not intended to offend sony but just suggesting why they might of said that)

to get the details required for a call centre. in my experience normally call centres are out sourced from a company and normally managed by a third party.

anyway, you ever been talking to a call centre? if you complain enough you can get anything out of them, remember your talking to someone who just wants to go home at 5 and doesnt really care about the company or notice what might be used for potential hax.
when i had a spectrum me and my bro used to ring people, say we were IT and ask them to read the IP address of the side of their routers. no one ever questioned it. this is not sonys problem, more a problem with the training systems these people were given.
with the right details i could access NASA, doesnt mean NASA have poor security.
