Hackers may have obtained credit card data from Sony Playstation Network

The headline:  Sony: Credit card data at risk in PlayStation hack

The link:  http://www.usatoday.com/tech/gaming/2011-04-26-sony-playstation_n.htm

The summary:  User credit card information may be at risk when data hackers broke into the Sony Playstation Network online service sometime about a week ago.  Some 75 million users could be affected.

The reaction:  Sony becomes the latest victim of a data intrusion and the potential impact could be huge.

For its part, Sony is saying they have no evidence that credit card data was taken but acknowledge that it’s a possibility.  They claim that the card’s security code was safe.  Either way, it’s another sad reminder about how none of our information is safe any more.
