Last week, Sony announced a security breach to its PlayStation Network & Qriocity services. Sony took those services offline and they remain offline at this time. Today, in a post on the Playstation blog, Sony announced the depth of the breach and it is pretty close to a worst-case scenario. Names, addresses, birthdates, emails and passwords have been snagged and it’s possible that credit card numbers, expiration dates and security questions and answers were taken too.
If you frequently reuse a password, it’s time to get to work. Be cautious in the days to come for scams. Sony has provided other tips and suggestions in their blog post.
