Almost ¾ of a million of Australians affected by Sony hack.
Sony was excited to release their new PlayStation 4. Consumers quickly snatched up their new gaming equipment and began to play. Soon after the release, Sony sent out an email to some users instructing a password change. But Sony was too late, again. In fact, users had already begun to notice that their credit card information had been stolen. Hackers most likely stole usernames and passwords and most likely credit card information as well. Thieves were not only buying things like clothes but adding PlayStation extras to the real owner’s gaming console. If the thieves had passwords, they could then log into the victim’s console and play with the new extras they had stolen. So, who is the real perpetraitor here? Sony or the hackers? If Sony had better data security this breach should never have happened.
