If You Have a Credit Card Tied to Sony’s PlayStation Network Cancel It

I haven’t commented on the serious security breech Sony is dealing with involving their PlayStation Network but I thought I’d toss out a warning. It appears as though whoever broke into Sony’s network was able to walk off with account information for 24.6 million of Sony’s customers. Sony has listed that following information is likely compromised:

e-mail address
phone number
login name
hashed password.

In addition to the information above, the 10,700 direct debit records from accounts in Austria, Germany, Netherlands and Spain, include:

bank account number
customer name
account name
customer address.

That amount of personal information is perfect for malicious people wanting to perform targeted scams so watch yourself. Likewise if you have a debit or credit card tied to your PlayStation Network account call the bank that issued you the card and report it as stolen because it likely was.
