12,700 Credit Cards Stolen From SOE
Sony Online Entertainment has revealed that about 24 Million accounts and 12,700 Credit Cards have been compromised from the intrusion on the PSN about two weeks ago.
SOE had just found out about the theft this morning but the accounts and credit cards were stolen around April 16th and 17th. The type of information that was stolen were names, addresses, email addresses, birthdates, gender, login names, and passwords.
The credit card information that was stolen came from an outdated database, which contained 12,700 non-U.S. credit and debit card numbers. It also had direct debit information for 10,700 Austria, Germany, Netherlands and Spain customers.
SOE will be giving its subscribers a 30 Day Free subscription, as well as compensation for each additional day the services are down. Also, they are going to compensate for their PlayStation 3 Free Realms and DC Universe Online users.
