Another bad week for Sony
Sony said in this case, the personal data on some 26.4 million people who play Sony’s multiplayer games, including Everquest and Star Wars Galaxies, was accessed. The information stolen included names, addresses, account names and passwords. Additionally, some 12,700 non-U.S. credit and debit card numbers with their expiration dates plus an additional 10,000 direct debit records belonging to customers in Austria and Germany were taken. Sony described these as having come from an “outdated” database.
