After the PSN hacking debacle back in April, and Sony’s subsequent apology, hackers are trying yet again to obtain user data from Sony.
According to the report, nothing of value was lost. All credit card information and personal data was left intact, with only minor service interruptions. As a precaution, Sony temporarily locked approximately 93000 user accounts.
It would seem Sony is finally taking user security seriously. (As well they should.) One can only wonder what the motivations behind this particular hacking attempt were, and whether or not it was related to Sony’s changes to the PSN terms of service.
