More Data Loss

 Another data-loss from Sony, as you may have heard that the Sony PSN was hacked but this data-loss was from Sony Online Entertainment. SOE has 10+ MMOs currently online. A data base was stolen from 2007 which has about 12,700 non-US customer credit or debit card numbers and expiration dates according to Sony. Sony has also said is had about 10,700 direct debit records listing bank account numbers from customers in Germany, Austria, Netherlands and Spain. Personal information was stolen for about 24.6 Million accounts with the following data:

  • name
  • address
  • e-mail address
  • birthdate
  • gender
  • phone number
  • login name
  • hashed password. 
 Once again if you used your SOE password at another site I highly recommend you change all the sites that use that password.You can read the SOE press release here: Press Release
