Sony: PSN intruder may have taken credit card info


Sony reports that an intruder may have gleaned users' personal information, including credit card details, from its PlayStation Network. The PSN's been offline for nearly a week now while the company investigates. Though the first order of business for PSN customers is to call their bank and keep a close eye on the ol' credit card balance, the BBC warns people to be aware of more insidious schemes that exploit mundane personal details, such as telephone scams and identity theft.
