Similar to last week’s debacle, this latest hack is said to have included more than 20,000 credit card and bank account numbers, as well as other personal information including names, phone numbers and addresses. In a press release, Sony admitted to yet another intrusion they discovered almost 2 weeks after it had happened.
Sony Online Entertainment provides online multiplayer games to its users, but following suit with just about everything else the PlayStation Network has been forced to do, Sony shut down its SOE servers once they became aware of the intrusion.
After announcing the intrusion a day after it was discovered, to make up for the fact that Sony may have led to yet another mammoth leak of personal information, their users are getting one free month added to their subscriptions, along with compensation each day that the service remain inaccessible.
Sony is currently in the process of sending out notifications to all users whose accounts were compromised.
What do you think Sony should do to compensate its users? Let us know in the comments.
