Sony Have Lost More Customer Data....

Dear Valued Sony Online Entertainment Customer:
Our ongoing investigation of illegal intrusions into Sony Online Entertainment systems has discovered that hackers may have obtained personal customer information from SOE systems. We are today advising you that the personal information you provided us in connection with your SOE account may have been stolen in a cyber-attack. Stolen information includes, to the extent you provided it to us, the following: name, address (city, state, zip, country), email address, gender, birthdate, phone number, login name and hashed password.

Customers outside the United States should be advised that we further discovered evidence that information from an outdated database from 2007 containing approximately 12,700 non-US customer credit or debit card numbers and expiration dates (but not credit card security codes) and about 10,700 direct debit records listing bank account numbers of certain customers in Germany, Austria, Netherlands and Spain may have also been obtained. We will be notifying each of those customers promptly.

Initially I thought I was not affected by this, but I then remembered one of my kids had a recurring (monthly) membership to "Clone Wars Adventures™" (via Miniclip.com).

Fortunately I paid by PayPal.com not by credit or debit card, & this title was available from September 2010 in any respect.

A warning for anybody to check that they do not have a subscription to any of these titles published by Sony Online Entertainment:

EverQuest® [1999 onwards]
PlanetSide® [2003 onwards]
Star Wars Galaxies [2003 onwards]
EverQuest® II [2004 onwards]
Champions of Norrath® [2004 onwards]
(The) Matrix Online [2005-2009]
Vanguard: Saga of Heroes [2007 onwards]

Free Realms® [2009 onwards; so, hopefully not affected]
Clone Wars Adventures™ [2010 onwards; ditto]
DC Universe Online™ [2011 onwards; ditto]

Some of this list were not operational in 2007, however [as noted above].

BFN,

Probably already been mentioned, but for those of you out there who had the same email address on the Sony details as your Paypal email. Ensure you are not using the same password on both, or even the same security questions/answers on both. Same goes for other accounts, like eBay and so on. Many people use the same email and same password for everything, if you are one of these people, stop doing it.

LOL!! I can't believe people do that still. Anything that's important to me I use different passwords for and anything I register to enter competitions or anything I use the same password for because I'm not really bothered.

What makes you think Microsoft's systems are immune from similar breaches of security (in the future)?

Have to agree Microsoft are so secure & un-hackable & I would like to thank Microsoft for my free Windows 7 for ever & ever.oO

There's no guarantees any online system is secure, in fact I'd say it's safe to assume all internet services can be potentially compromised. This goes for banks, government data, Amazon, Play etc.
