This time, it's Sony:
Sony has admitted that hackers have stolen the personal information of customers who use the company's online PlayStation Network...Some 77 million people have accounts with the PlayStation Network and Qriocity service, which allows gamers to play games online together as well as purchase and play movies and music. Sony does not believe credit card data was stolen, but it did issue this warning: "While there is no evidence at this time that credit card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility. If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, out of an abundance of caution we are advising you that your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may have been obtained."
Credit card companies are going to have to figure out a faster way to get customers their new credit cards—maybe banks will have to have credit card printers on-site?—because I think stories like this are the new normal.
In other compromised information news, Borders announced that the names and e-mail addresses of some of their Borders Rewards customers were accidentally published on a publicly available website.
