Sony confirms a ‘compromise of personal information’ on PSN

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on April 26th, 2011

Looks like things have just taken a turn for the worse as far as Sony’s PSN goes. The “external intrusion” was worse than we had last heard. Sony has confirmed that the PSN outage was caused by “malicious actions,” and now they are saying that there has also been “a compromise of personal information.”

Sony isn’t being very specific about what that means. For instance, we don’t know yet if credit card data for PSN and Qriocity users has actually been exposed, but the company says that “your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may have been obtained.” So apparently they are not sure. Best check with the bank if you are worried.

You are not always as safe as you think you are. Citibank revealed that it’s U.S. iPhone app accidentally saved personal information including account numbers. At least the company did the right thing and owned up to this security flaw.

In fact, they have already rolled out an updated iPhone app that patches the problems. According to Citibank, this flaw only affected users of their mobile banking app. Credit card customers who use Citibank’s services via a separate iPhone application were believed to be safe.
