Never trust to $ony your credit card info's. They fail bigtime on their security that's why even banks have blacklisted $ony from VISA enabled services.

You'd expect with all that they have gone through that it wouldn't happen again. Just proves they are still lying and spending their money on other crap instead of the real problems like security.
I hope this goes global and the world hears about it. Sony are not to be trusted anymore.
This is definitely not a hack. It's just an old-school Brute Force attempt using old User/Pass combo's.
The money and time Sony will have spent on beefing up their security will have involved
- Separating the ability to directly access someone's Credit/Debit Card info - so that should be safe.
- Front-end security to directly access Sony's Online Services - so Sony's server/DB should be safe.
- Obtaining lists of User/Pass combo's - so every user's information should not be plain txt and safe.
No need to talk about suing them - class action or otherwise.
No need to talk about "Sony got hacked again".
No need to panic
Well here is what it has to say regarding credit cards on the main article.
Please note, if you have a credit card associated with your account, your credit card number is not at risk
It's not good enough sony!!!
hooly dooly!! CONGRATS ON 1200 POST HEYMAN.. that was quick mate.. gold trophy quick.. LOL
That was me, I forgot my password and kept trying all night.
This is embarrassing, sorry guys.
it was only a matter of time before this type of attack was tried, its a wakeup call for all those people who use the same username/password combo to change EVERYTHING they login to.
sonys systems are more secure than they were thats for sure, but they could put in place a system that blocks logging in to the account for x amount of time after x amount of failed attempts.
they could put in place a security system like facebook has that will get the user to verify the account if x username is trying to login from a totally different location from whats normally used.
That's right, poor security system is Sony's greatest weak.
