It looks like there is more trouble for Sony, after the various hacks on their PSN and other services earlier in the year, yesterday Sony has announced that around 93,000 of their online accounts may have been compromised.
According to a recent blog post, Sony has said that they have detected attempts to gain access to the SEN, PSN and SOE services, and they have now locked down a total of 93,000 individual accounts and users of the accounts will have to do a secure password reset.
Less than one tenth of one percent (0.1%) of our PSN, SEN and SOE audience may have been affected. There were approximately 93,000 accounts globally (PSN/SEN: approximately 60,000 accounts; SOE: approximately 33,000) where the attempts succeeded in verifying those accounts’ valid sign-in IDs and passwords, and we have temporarily locked these accounts. Only a small fraction of these 93,000 accounts showed additional activity prior to being locked. We are currently reviewing those accounts for unauthorized access, and will provide more updates as we have them. Please note, if you have a credit card associated with your account, your credit card number is not at risk. We will work with any users whom we confirm have had unauthorized purchases made to restore amounts in the PSN/SEN or SOE wallet.
Sony has also said that no users credit card information is at risk, you can find out full details over at the Sony Playstation Blog.
