Post by: Bugbatter on October 12, 2011, 06:08:15 AM

Hackers successfully broke into 93,000 accounts at Sony over the last few days, once again impacting users of the Sony Entertainment Network, PlayStation Network (PSN) and Sony Online Entertainment services.

According to a blog post by Philip Reitinger, Sony's Chief Information Security Officer, credit card details were not compromised.

As a precautionary step, Sony has frozen the compromised accounts and will email impacted users asking them to confirm their identity and reset their passwords.
