77 millioner Playstation-brukere hacket

Sist oppdatert:
Tidenes største sikkerhetsinnbrudd kan være et faktum.

En uidentifisert hacker kan ha stjålet navn, adresser og kredittkortinformasjonen til 77 millioner Playstation-brukere over hele verden. Det skriver Sky News.

Elektronikkgiganten Sony har bekreftet at én eller flere hackere kan ha stjålet personlig informasjon fra opp mot 77 millioner kunder som bruker Sony Playstation Network.

Dette antas, ifølge Sky News, å være det største sikkerhetsbruddet i internetts historie.

Tidde en uke
Sony ble kjent med innbruddet allerede 19 april i år. De koblet umiddelbart ut hele Playstation Network, men valgte å holde munn om innbruddet i en hel uke. I stedet har bare brukerne blitt møtt med informasjon om at tjenesten er nede for vedlikehold.

Elektronikkgiganten sendt ut en melding til brukerne der det blant annet står at en ubuden gjest har fått tak i navn, adresser, e-postadresser, fødselsdager, brukernavn, passord, login-informasjon, sikkerhetsspørsmål og mer.

På Sonys norske og amerikanske nettside står det ingenting om innbruddet foreløpig.

Vet ikke hva som har skjedd
Ifølge Sky News er det usikkert om innbruddstyven har fått ut kredittkortinformasjon.

- Vi kan ikke utelukke at din kredittkortinformasjon er lekket, skriver Sony i meldingen til brukerne.

Den norske bloggeren og Playstation-spiller Lars-Erik Østerud skriver at han nå stålsetter seg for innbruddsforsøk på Facebook og andre steder han er aktiv på nett.

Sony har lagt ut en detaljert forklaring på hva som har skjedd og råd til hvordan brukerne skal håndtere situasjonen på en egen blogg.

Dette er meldingen Sony nå har lagt ut på sine norske nettsider, som stort sett er lik den amerikanske meldingen:

Thank you for your patience while we work to resolve the current outage of PlayStation Network & Qriocity services. The following email has been sent to all PSN registrants; please read the help and support FAQ for more information.

Valued PlayStation 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 re-building 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/province, zip or postal code), country, email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity passwords 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 that credit card data was taken at this time, we cannot rule out the possibility. If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, to be on the safe side we are advising that your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may also 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, tax identification or similar 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 or similar types of reports.

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. Please contact us at no.playstation.com/psnoutage should you have any additional questions.

Sincerely,

Sony Network Entertainment and Sony Computer Entertainment Teams
