The irony of it is that THEY fucked up. All the credit card data was sent UNPROTECTED and NO ENCRYPTED. They blame it on "hackers" but all the hackers did was send fake credit card number to buy psn games. The information breach is entirely unrelated.

PS3 sent credit card info unencrypted, meaning anyone with a packet sniffer (this is very common tool for programmers/network people) could see your data. An example of what this looked like is : "http://www.psn.com/store?creditcard=Visa&creditcard_number=1
234567". THEY fucked up, not any "hacker" IE: 2 guys using rebug CFW to put a regular ps3 into service mode and tunnel into their network. It's a witch hunt , but that's what all fine mega corperations do when they fuck up, blame someone else.

When a PS3 is in service mode it allows you to enter the Sony network because it thinks you are a certified Sony service person. Well guess what, Sony knew about this for almost a year now ! They knew about the jailbreak usb dongle, they knew about geohots cwf, they knew about kmeows cfw, yet they did jack shit nothing to protect their customers, instead ruthlessly spreading anti "hacker" (more like people that just want to run linux and not bother anyone) propaganda on all their channels to "fear the hacker" when they should have updated their security. If your works building is on fire shouldn't your boss tell you ? If your health is at risk shouldn't your doctor let you know? Fuck Sony.

From PSN: "All of the data was protected, and access was restricted both physically and through the perimeter and security of the network. The entire credit card table was encrypted and we have no evidence that credit card data was taken."

Please research your claims before posting thanks d00d
