PSN got FBI Attention

The leaking of 77 million PSN account has attracted the attention of The U.S. Department of Homeland Security and FBI. The personal data that may have fallen into the hands of hackers are likely also will expose other external data, such as business and financial information, and government institutions information.

As reported earlier that Sony states that the possibility of user data such as name, address, date of birth, email address, login name and password may have been leaked because these data are not encrypted in the PSN network itself. Even so the Sony states that the Credit Card data is stored encrypted, and there is no evidence that these data has leaked, but of course it does not make things better.

Good news for users of the PSN is that Friends Lists and PlayStation Trophies are expected to remain intact when the service return.

About 2.2M PSN Member's Credit Card Information up for Sale

According to Kevin Stevens, an online security expert with TrendMicro, "low-level cybercriminals" are currently shopping around lists supposedly containing the credit card details of 2.2 million PlayStation Network members.

While Sony says it has "no evidence credit card numbers were stolen" in the attacks on the PlayStation Network, it has still recommended people make necessary precautions regarding their cards and bank accounts.

Stevens says the details are up for sale on the illegal forums of "carders" (people engaged in credit card fraud), and while he does not link these forums directly, says the sellers are claiming to be in possession of card holder's names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, dates of birth and, perhaps most importantly, full credit card details, including their CVV2 numbers (those little numbers on the back of the card).
