Public Enemy #1: The Sony Hacker

So first this entity known now as "The Sony Hacker" infiltrated the PSN servers and comprised Sony's Playstation 3 network bringing it down for almost 2 weeks. Accounts and credit card numbers may have been stolen and it seems the Homeland Security are now looking into this matter. This downtime for the PSN hits more to the MMO community that play DC Universe Online.

But now, as of Monday May 2, the PC users who play DC Universe Online through Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) are now suffering through the downtime. SOE has now been hacked and services went down and investigations have begun to find out what happened. Apparently 24.6 million SOE accounts may have been stolen (didn't know that had that many) as well as information from a database from 2007.

Well, I'm pissed just like much of you are as well. But this is something we cannot fix and we have to wait for Sony to work on and fix themselves. The PSN users are getting some "free stuff" for what happened to them so I can only imagine what is going to come around for us PC users. You can follow the link below to find out more about this situation and what to do if your account is one that has been compromised, which I hope is none of us and no information was stolen at all.


I'll keep everyone up to date with information that I find.
