Damn that Sony

Gotta PlayStation Network Subscription?
Could be bad news....
Hacker's somehow managed to hack into Sony's PlayStation Network database and they managed to steal personal information of about 70 million subscribers(which may or may not include credit card numbers).
Sony has reason to believe that part of the information stolen may include names, addresses (City, State, Zip), country, e-mail addresses, birth dates, and PlayStation Network/Qriocity Login Credentials. Maybe even past addresses and purchase history. So in other words if you were or are a current subscriber of the PlayStation Network then you should be on the look out of identity theft attempts and any other kind of scams. If you wish you can contact the three major credit bureaus and have your accounts put on "Hight Alert", which will be free of charge. I guess the good news is that Sony is going to be completely rebuilding their system.
Can you say "Epic Fail"?
