Voici là copie en anglais du mail que devrait recevoir les utilisateurs du réseau sony avec leur PS3:
=================================== Valued PlayStation(R)Network/Qriocity Customer: We have discovered that between April 17 and April 19, 2011, certain PlayStation Network and
Qriocity service user account information was compromised in connection with an illegal and
unauthorized intrusion into our network. In response to this intrusion, we have: 1) Temporarily turned off PlayStation Network and Qriocity services; 2) Engaged an outside, recognized security firm to conduct a full and complete investigation
into what happened; and 3) Quickly taken steps to enhance security and strengthen our network infrastructure by
rebuilding our system to provide you with greater protection of your personal information. We greatly appreciate your patience, understanding and goodwill as we do whatever it takes
to resolve these issues as quickly and efficiently as practicable. Although we are still investigating the details of this incident, we believe that an
unauthorized person has obtained the following information that you provided: name, address
(city, state, zip), country, email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password
and login, and handle/PSN online ID. It is also possible that your profile data, including
purchase history and billing address (city, state, zip), and your PlayStation Network/Qriocity
password security answers may have been obtained. If you have authorized a sub-account for your
dependent, the same data with respect to your dependent may have been obtained. While there is
no evidence at this time that credit card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility.
If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, out of
an abundance of caution we are advising you that your credit card number
(excluding security code) and expiration date may have been obtained. For your security, we encourage you to be especially aware of email, telephone and postal mail
scams that ask for personal or sensitive information. Sony will not contact you in any way,
including by email, asking for your credit card number, social security number or other
personally identifiable information. If you are asked for this information, you can be confident
Sony is not the entity asking. When the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services are fully
restored, we strongly recommend that you log on and change your password. Additionally, if
you use your PlayStation Network or Qriocity user name or password for other unrelated services
or accounts, we strongly recommend that you change them as well. To protect against possible identity theft or other financial loss, we encourage you to remain
vigilant, to review your account statements and to monitor your credit reports. We are providing
the following information for those who wish to consider it: – U.S. residents are entitled
under U.S. law to one free credit report annually from each of the three major credit bureaus.
To order your free credit report, visit www.annualcreditreport.com or call toll-free (877) 322-8228.
– We have also provided names and contact information for the three major U.S. credit bureaus below.
At no charge, U.S. residents can have these credit bureaus place a “fraud alert” on your file
that alerts creditors to take additional steps to verify your identity prior to granting credit
in your name. This service can make it more difficult for someone to get credit in your name.
Note, however, that because it tells creditors to follow certain procedures to protect you, it
also may delay your ability to obtain credit while the agency verifies your identity. As soon
as one credit bureau confirms your fraud alert, the others are notified to place fraud alerts
on your file. Should you wish to place a fraud alert, or should you have any questions regarding
your credit report, please contact any one of the agencies listed below: Experian: 888-397-3742;
www.experian.com; P.O. Box 9532, Allen, TX 75013
Equifax: 800-525-6285; www.equifax.com; P.O. Box 740241, Atlanta, GA 30374-0241
TransUnion: 800-680-7289; www.transunion.com; Fraud Victim Assistance Division, P.O. Box 6790,
Fullerton, CA 92834-6790 – You may wish to visit the website of the U.S.
Federal Trade Commission at www.consumer.gov/idtheft or reach the FTC at 1-877-382-4357 or
600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20580 for further information about how to protect
yourself from identity theft. Your state Attorney General may also have advice on preventing
identity theft, and you should report instances of known or suspected identity theft to law
enforcement, your State Attorney General, and the FTC. For North Carolina residents, the Attorney
General can be contacted at 9001 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC 27699-9001; telephone
(877) 566-7226; or www.ncdoj.gov. For Maryland residents, the Attorney General can be contacted at 200
St. Paul Place, 16th Floor, Baltimore, MD 21202; telephone: (888) 743-0023; or www.oag.state.md.us. We thank you for your patience as we complete our investigation of this incident, and we regret any
inconvenience. Our teams are working around the clock on this, and services will be restored as soon
as possible. Sony takes information protection very seriously and will continue to work to ensure
that additional measures are taken to protect personally identifiable information. Providing
quality and secure entertainment services to our customers is our utmost priority.

Que dire à propos de ce problème? Après le procès de geohot pour le crack de la PS3, ils semblent qu’ils soient toujours dans le besoin de recruter une personne digne de ce nom pour fiabiliser leur système. Et pour une fois ce n’est pas un coup des anonymous
