Philip Reitinger, Sony's Chief Information Security Officer, not only defended our accounts from the dangers of the Internet, but he regaled us with stories of his epic battle.
PSN, SOE, and SEN detected "a large amount of data obtained from one or more compromised lists from other companies, sites or other sources." The hackers tried to pair up the information they had, with the accounts that existed on all these Sony services. About .1% found a match, which translates to about 93,000 accounts globally. Not bad, when you consider what happened the last time Sony was hacked.
Nice showing Sony. Not only did they stop the hackers, but the let us know about it pretty quickly.
