Wow, who wants to take a guess and say that the security Sony used for the PSN is similar to what they used for SOE. If true this really amplifies Sony's incompetence, cause if the PSN could be breached, then logic dictates that any other system using similar security methods could also be breached using the same attack methods.
If its completely different then that is another matter, cause any system can be breached with enough effort, however this is yet another massive blow to Sony. An additional 24 million accounts with personal info and thousands of credit cards and debit info have been leaked. Wow... just wow. This must be some kind of record, combined with the PSN this now equals 101 million accounts that have been compromised. Granted of those 77 million PSN accounts probably only about 15 million of them were not alt accounts, but still.
So what else does Sony have that can be breached to lose millions more accounts? PSN and SOE might be the biggest, but whoever is attacking Sony is quite persistent, probably not going to be long before we hear of another attack on some other Sony system that will no doubt cripple them even further.
