Apparently Sony has just recently frozen 93,000 in order to prevent any information being leaked out in yet another attack against the big gaming giant. According to An Important Message From Sony’s Chief Information Security Office, Sony has had to freeze "approximately 93,000 accounts globally (PSN/SEN: approximately 60,000 accounts; SOE: approximately 33,000) where the attempts succeeded in verifying those accounts’ valid sign-in IDs and passwords, and we have temporarily locked these accounts".

So it looks like someone has found 93,000 accounts and passwords, and given it a go by brute forcing their way in, but that has caused alarm bells to ring and Sony has luckily acted swiftly. Let this be a warning, don't use the same username/password for anything else!

Hopefully no one here has been affected, but let us know if you have. Makes me feel a bit lucky to not own a current generation console with all the rampant hacking going on in the recent years. promoted/edited forum item
