UPDATE: And believe it or not, per Wired, it’s even worse than the Engadget report. The personal information of another 24.6 million SOE users? Good god, Sony.
Okay, now this is just getting silly. Per a post up at Engadet, Nikkei.com is reporting that 12,700 credit card numbers have been compromised from Sony Online Entertainment (SOE). Engadget speculates that because the data “is said to be from 2007,” that it’s possible the card numbers come from an old backup. (I feel so much better now.) This, after I solemnly predicted this morning’s SOE shutdown was surely precautionary in nature. Shows what I know.
