So PSN users are screwed (Including me)
If you haven't been following, PSN is down. It got hacked by an unknown source. It came out yesterday/today that PSN users personal information has been compromised. Billing Addresses, Passwords ,Credit Card info,etc

Personally, this info should have been out on the 20th of April, even if it was just speculation. People should know right away when their information was compromised. I am apart of the user affected, but I do not posses a credit card, so Im sort of safe on that part.


Opinions?

Well, PSN isn't coming back.

I heard they're just going to completely revamp it.

Everyone should check their credit cards though.

If only they spent the time/money they spent suing the dude who hacked it, on securing their network...

offtopic: your sig makes me lol with the windows7 32 bit. Should be XP 32.

I even forget you can see sigs.

They claim another week of downtime.

Did you have a PSN account? Because your information may still be compromised

Its speculated this is 'retribution' for the litigation against the hacker that Sony tried to sue for jailbreaking the PS3, for what it's worth.

Personally I always use fake aliases for those kinds of things. Im playing a game, damn it, they don't need personally-identifiable information for that. Its part of the reason I got off consoles.
