    Actually most sites are now reporting it now, Sony just released the info a couple hours ago.

    http://www.gamespot.com/news/6310386.html?tag=latestheadlines;title;1


    US Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) has called on Sony to offer full disclosure to PSN users if their information was compromised and to offer two years of free access to credit reporting services to check if their credit was adversely affected. "Affected individuals should also be provided with sufficient insurance to protect them from the possible financial consequences of identity theft," Blumenthal said.

    That was my point exactly. If you think there's even a small chance your customers' CC info could've been compromised then letting them know is the responsible thing to do. Especially for a company as huge as Sony.

    Apparently (and no idea if this is fake or not) they got the IP address of the 14 year old (wtf?) hacker who hacked in.

    If true, interesting.

    I've actually been hoping it was just some kid. The way I see it, a kid is more likely to have just been screwing around and "seeing if he could" rather than out to steal, and use, personal information.

    If they have his IP address, it *should* be all good.
