Hackers Claim Stolen PlayStation Data Is For Sale
Stolen credit card information from the Sony PlayStation Network may be circulating the web, according to The New York Times.
Security researchers have discovered discussions on hacker forums that suggest as many as 2.2 million credit card numbers, as well as names, addresses, usernames and passwords, could be stored in a database. Some hackers have even said they are trying to sell the list for $100,000 or more.
The database itself, as well as the discussions, cannot be confirmed.
Sony admitted that they had shut down the network indefinitely because of hackers. Users can purchase games, or connect to other players in multiplayer games across the cloud-based network. 70 million users are part of the network, though the company did not say how many of these users had been compromised.
