    Yeh it has, they noticed the intrusion on Thursday morning BST and the service was taken down straight away. They've been rebuilding it from the ground up ever since.

    Stupid thing is they waited until this afternoon, nearly 6 days later, to tell their customers that their info was stolen!!!!!! :stomp: :angry: :stomp:

    Thankfully my CC connected to my PSN expired a month ago and I hadn't got round to changing it.

    you will, you are paying for internet you already have and big chance its nothing more secure than PSN. But aslong as Microsoft isn't gonna grab people by their neck who mod an Xbox because they promised OpenOS would work on it I wouldn't worry much. Sony didn't really handle things very well.

    Sony are looking at a class-action lawsuit over this.

    Rumour is that it could be up to $24bn in damages.

    Ouch.

    i doubt this has anything to do with that, that was the SOE station.

    at least i hope not!

    Apparently CC information was encrypted, but passwords and all the other info was stored in plaintext... major fail, how hard is it use use password hashes?

    It seems the saga continues, the PSN is still unavailable in Europe and now Sony Online Entertainment (EQ2, SWG etc) have suspended all services:

    "Dear valued SOE Customers,

    We have had to take the SOE service down temporarily. In the course of our investigation into the intrusion into our systems we have discovered an issue that warrants enough concern for us to take the service down effective immediately. We will provide an update later today (Monday)."

    Not looking good for Sony :p

    LOL.

    Serious reply: FF11 is done via Square Enix's Playonline system, not PSN or SOE.
    tldr: no you're not in trouble, except with TEAM AWESOME FOR HAVING A FF11 ACCOUNT.
    HIGH FIVE.
