Chopped 77 million customer accounts at Sony

Personally, I would probably have never noticed. But the fact is that the PlaystationNetwork is down now for a week already. All 77 million users are affected by one of the most spectacular data thefts in recent years. Virtually all personal data appear to have been sucked off by hackers. Sony can not even rule out that credit cardinformation are affected. It was hard to find the causes and possibilities of quick repair and have a reputable security company brought on board, Sony.Nevertheless, the PlayStation Network, along with Qriocity probably only in the course of next week and then only in part will be back in operation.

I think just a bunch of addicted kids started this hype, I know it's kind of a big deal, but obviously they will address and fix it soon, it's not like it's been down THAT long for people to start freaking out.

This seems to what all the blogs are talking about.

freakin hackers man. I mean, it's cool that they're able to pull this off, but its a pain in the butt for people that have to go through the ordeal of putting their information and identities back in order. I like keeping up on this sorts of news, I'll follow you around.

Going to agree with Gaston on this one. Its pretty amazing someone can pull something like this off, but Sony needs to pick up there security for sure
