Sony aren't sure whether hackers have your credit card details

26 April 2011

Playstation ButtonsSony are wringing their hands at the moment because they're not certain about whether hackers have managed to steal customers' credit card information when they tapped into the PlayStation network platform.

The network was hoiked offline following an attack, which left the gaming platform inaccessible for nearly a week.

Patrick Seybold, the senior director for corporate communications & social media, says:

“Our efforts to resolve this matter involve re-building our system to further strengthen our network infrastructure. Though this task is time-consuming, we decided it was worth the time necessary to provide the system with additional security”

Nearly 70 million people have been denied a key feature thanks to this PlayStation hack, which has left many a little shaken over trusting Sony's products ability to deal with attacks.
