Sony states an illegal attempt to break PlayStation accounts

Sony reported a disturbing incident. There was a break of the PlayStation Network this morning which could have exposed the passwords of some of its users.

A message on the PlayStation website this morning read: "Although unlikely, it is possible that the passwords of a small percentage of PlayStation Network users may have been changed through unauthorized access, making it possible to view users' personal information and/or use the wallet for the PlayStation Store."

However, because PSN accounts do not display entire credit card numbers, Sony said any access to users' accounts was "very unlikely" to have compromised credit card numbers.

In the statement Sony said it had taken immediate action to correct the issue. System security has been restored, a company representative said. Customers who might have been affected by the breach are being notified by Sony.

As a precaution, Sony advises PSN users sign in to the service and verify the integrity of their account.
