    I don't know who to be more pissed at. The hackers who did this, or Sony for instigating the whole Jihad against them =\

    From the language used and the information accessed this definitely sounds like it is unrelated to the unauthorized access to the dev network.

    Yeah it's kinda obvious now =\ So while some kids were pirating pretending to be hackers some real hackers did some hacking of their own.

    This really does take the piss now, because the psn is free I'm not so worried when it comes back on as long as Sony get it sorted. If I was xbox on the other side I would be demanding money back. On the days the service was down. I think Sony should the give the ps3 users some form of compensation back. Maybe a free game when the service comes back online.

    As long as my credit card details are safe, I don't care about compensation, which probably goes for most people now.

    This made me laugh.

    Lack of communication was definitely ridiculous.

    Yeah I'm a bit more concerned about the Credit Card issue rather than not having PSN

    Here's my issue. How is it that they don't think credit card information was stolen, yet they are so specific in pointing out that the number and expiration date might have been taken (but not security code)? Do they just save those two things..are do they know more than they're letting on? Not sure that one case posted above is much to go on but I guess we'll see.

    Security codes are never saved so that's why it's not included in the list, it's not something they have

    Hilariously enough, I didn't agree to that New EULA a few months back.
    And the credit card I had on file was canceled along with the account to open a new one in march.
    Score!

    Ah okay, I just figured it was required for most online services, and when people steal credit card information they manage to use it somehow for online activity.
