Sony Play Station Network went down one more security beach, according to Sony Official PlayStation blog there is no evidence for stolen credit card detail but Sony even not ruling out the possibility.

“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,” said Patric Seybold in the blog post.

I would suggest all PlayStation users to be careful and be vigilant until Sony comes out clean. Make sure to review your account statements and monitor your credit reports daily.

Sony is currently working hard to restore the PlayStation network and hired a recognized security firm to conduct a thorough investigation into what happened.
