Playstation Network and Qriocity Compromised
Although it is outside our normal realm of coverage at OnRPG, we needed to get the word out. If you are a user of the Playstation Network or Qriocity, your account information including passwords, birthdate, billing address, and other provided information has likely been accessed by a skilled hacker that broke through the Playstation security protocols between April 17 and April 19th.
Playstation is pulling out all stops in securing their network and they have hired a third party security firm to figure out how this crime was committed and who was behind it. Playstation and Qriocity services will be down in the meantime until security is confirmed.
To our readers, please take the time to check with your financial institutions and be sure that no unusual activity has taken place on your card. Although it is not certain how much information the hacker was able to acquire, it never hurts to error on the side of caution!
