Sony Online Entertainment Breached; Personal Information Stolen

on May 2, 2011 7:30 PM

Yet another blunder from everyone’s favorite and secure company Sony has just been announced. After openly admitting recently that credit card data has in fact been compromised over the Playstation Network, it has just been reveled that personal data on Sony Online Entertainment, the MMO wing of Sony that hosts games such as DC Universe Online, Star Wars Galaxies and Everquest has been stolen. It has been reported that over 12,700 additional credit cards have been compromised, even after the apology this weekend. Sony really needs to step their game up here in remedying this situation to their users, as currently nobody takes them seriously. They either need to get a new PR team, a new IT team, or a counter-hacker team, as this is just a disgusting betrayal of users’ personal identities and information.

Daniel plans on either going to graduate school for an MFA, or more realistically, getting a day job, which he hopes is somehow involved in the gaming, comic book, or film industries.
