Sony: PSN Credit Card List Rumors Not True
“To my knowledge, there is no truth to this report of a list, or that Sony was offered an opportunity to purchase the list.” --- Patrick Seybold, SCEA Spokesperson
In a recent PlayStation blog “network security” update, Sony Computer Entertainment America spokesperson – Patrick Seybold – reiterated what Sony Deputy President -Kazuo Hirai – has said in last weekend’s press conference: Sony PSN (PlayStation Network) subscribers’ credit card information have not been breached.
Seybold then again expressed his deep apologies “to the many users who were inconvenienced and worried abut [sic] this situation” at the blog post.
It’s an apparent move to dispel all allegations from various security firms that hackers have taken hold of a credit card list containing most, if not all, credit card information of subscribers during the PSN security breach. It was also rumored that the hackers were trying to sell the list for big money through back channel chat rooms.
Seybold shared that “to my knowledge, there is no truth to this report of a list, or that Sony was offered an opportunity to purchase the list,”
Although it may sound comforting to subscribers, it may be a little too late to extinguish the flames it caused. Good job Sony for suppressing any further damage, and good luck trying to win your customer’s trust again.View Article Source »
