Sony was hacked again today, this time on a much smaller scale. 90,000 accounts were hacked but this is only .1 percent of Sony’s client base. 60,000 PSN accounts and 30,000 SOE accounts were hacked to take the credits and move them off the account to do other things. On the Sony blog, they gave a statement saying;
“Less than one tenth of one percent (0.1%) of our PSN, SEN and SOE audience may have been affected…Please note, if you have a credit card associated with your account, your credit card number is not at risk. We will work with any users whom we confirm have had unauthorized purchases made to restore amounts in the PSN/SEN or SOE wallet.”
Emails were sent out to all those effected but what I would like to know is why does this keep happening. I understand there will always be someone out there that has the knowledge and the determination to do this how does this multi billion dollar company get hacked(and it seems like they’re being targeted now) while others don’t. What measures can Sony take to stop further abuse of their network?
Thank you to DSO Apparition and Lady Roc DSO for bringing this up!
