Ten days ago (4/17/11), Playstation Network and Qriocity accounts were hacked. Sony didn’t disclose this information until yesterday.

It’s possible that your name, credit card number, expiration date, AND security code were compromised. If you provided credit card information to either the Playstation Network or Qriocity, I would suggest that you check your accounts for suspicious activity, cancel the card, and have a new one reissued.

If you don’t know which card(s) were used, search your past e-mails from Sony when you added funds to your PSN account. It should tell you which card was used.

Update on PlayStation Network and Qriocity

    It seems to be worse than that now …

    Sony are saying another potentially another 25M “older” sets of customer details could have been taken from another one of their online databases.

    Not good.

    BTW, you should take a look at your Contact page – the Captcha function wasn’t working so I couldn’t email you.

    Thanks Nick for the update. I don’t have any PSN accounts, but I do have an older Star Wars Galaxies account. Time to cancel the credit card(s).

    Also, thanks for pointing out the Contact form problem. It SHOULD be fixed now.
