As you may know, Sony have had a serious cock-up where hackers have gained access to approximately 77million devoted PlayStation customers, I being one of them.

 

They may have access to your email and password, I STRONGLY recommend changing the passwords of everything you've signed up to which uses either the same email or password.

 

Scary thing is, if you have previously bought games or software from the PlayStation Store, therefore trusting Sony with your bank details as I did, they may have gotten access to them as well, I'm no expert of what to do in these situations, but if there are any purchases off of your card which you didn't know about, I'd recommend disabling the card you've linked your PlayStation account with to stop further unauthorized usage.

 

How could this have happened to such a powerful company?

I've been doing some research on this, and I've found out that the hackers have everybody's details.

 

Q.6    Does that mean all users’ information was compromised?  Tell us more in details of what personal information leaked.

 

In terms of possibility' date=' yes.  We believe that an unauthorized person has obtained the following information that you provided: name, address (city, state/province, zip or postal code), country, email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password, login, password security answers, and handle/PSN online ID.  It is also possible that your profile data may have been obtained, including purchase history and billing address (city, state/province, zip or postal code).  If you have authorized a sub-account for your dependent, the same data with respect to your dependent may have been obtained. If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, it is possible that your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may also have been obtained.
