Sony also added that the security breach may also affect older credit card data from their 2007 database. These data may include bank accounts, debit card and credit card expiration dates and numbers from certain subscribers from Spain, Netherlands, Austria and Germany.
The Sony Online Entertainment is now offline and they are seeking help from an outside security firm. In addition to these, the company is strengthening its security to protect its over 10,000 subscribers. However, people cannot deny that encountering security breach the second time will not give Sony’s reputation any good.View Article Source »
