Title: Did anyone get an email from Sony? Posted: April 27, 2011 (09:30 PM)
Cause I did, and frankly it's making me a bit nervous. Basically it's saying that they did get hacked, my personal information was at risk and also gave me some information on how to deal with it.
Now, I'm not sure if this was a pre-rendered letter they sent out to everyone because they're still not sure who was directly affected--because let's face it, it's Sony and as of now my faith in them is entirely shatter. Or if they know who was attacked and I was one of them.
If that's the case, I'm suing the fuck out of someone. Or maybe I'm just being paranoid.
If you did get a letter, let me know. Thanks.

It's a form letter. I got one. Hell, I've been in the unfortunate position of WRITING these before. I'll get worried when someone actually starts using my card (with the amount of money I have on there, they could afford to buy Young Thor exactly one and a half times).

I find it pretty shitty that they're just now sending these letters. This supposedly happened over a week ago. If some guy is smart enough to hack the system then I'm sure he is wise enough to know the sooner he uses it the more chance he has of it going unnoticed. It would have been nice if I'd known, so that week I could have implemented some sort of anti-fraud strategy but I'm cool with constantly monitoring my bank account, my credit, my email and my regular mail because Sony is too inept to say "Hey. Watch out" when the thing first fucking happened.

I got the e-mail--twice actually.
This is definitely an epic fail on Sony's part. I may contact my bank and have them issue me a new card or two.
Seriously, what the hell.

Yeah, and Suskie just posted a link to a press statement that pretty much verified it went to everyone.
It happens, and while I would like to entirely blame Sony for this whole mess you have to take into account the cunt that actually committed the crime.
I think they could have handled it a lot better, but it also wouldn't have been necessary if people weren't thieving douchbags.
