    Unconfirmed of course, but i've cancelled my card just to be sure. If its true, then Sony's well and truly up shit creek and fines will be the least of their worries.

    Are you the same HyperTails that used to frequent the PS forums?

    I like it when he's angry.

    Wow they have even more information than Sony has on it's members. Very talented hackers I must say.

    Ya. Haven't been on their in about 2 years though. I think. Well, over a year anyway.

    Why, did you have the same name on there?

    Well, if they do have the CVV/CVC/CSC numbers, then Sony is in a heap of shit, because no one is allowed to store or otherwise record that data under any circumstance. But given how much data Sony reportedly gathers on it's users, it wouldn't surprise me in the least.

    Smelling far too much 'if' coming off this though.

    I did. But I strongly remember you being a bit of a Nintendo fanboy in all honesty.

    Anyway, this whole CC information is a bit confusing, as in do they have it, don't they? Will we ever know the truth?

    I like it when he's angry.

    Sooner or later we will. It's all a big, fun rollercoaster of supposition for Sony's reputation until then.

    Yep pretty much, not much comfort for those concerned though. Although you'd think the majority have had their cards cancelled by now.

    I was a pretty staunch Nintendo supporter during the GameCube days i'll admit. I don't own a Wii though.

    But shit, that was like what, 5 years ago?

    Anyway... i'm sure we'll know the truth soon enough. Either Sony will tell us or we'll find out when some bloke from Nigeria rinses peoples cards on internet porn.

    Sony would never have issued a statement saying the CC details were secure if that was not the case. End of.

    Right?

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Meh, no one's got anything to worry about, the CC companies and banks will cover fraud and Sony is also accountable since that Alabama bloke's lawsuit has supposedly hit class action status. The only people who should be shitting themselves is Sony.

    Heh, no. All they said was the CC data was encrypted. Even if it was, millions of credit cards is quite a motivation for a skilled cracker.

    Not that i've ever been a victim of fraud before so i'm not doubting you, but I have heard from people who have been victims and sometimes it can be a nightmare getting your money back from the banks.

    Apparantly, debit cards are a real hassle. I saw apparantly. Though with that lawsuit gathering steam, more people will be jumping on the train.

    I put mine in the first time I made a transaction with it, for security reasons. I'm sure of it.

    If Sony's kept them then they have royally fucked up.

    Just asked a friend in the US, and he did as well. He remembers more clearly as he only got his PS3 a couple of months ago.

    Yeah, of course they're going to say that, they aren't allowed to keep a record of it. Doesn't mean no one was required to put it in.

    Admitting they've kept peoples security codes on a public statement is going to royally fuck them.

    Also there's very little to say this is anything more than a rumour, but either way, I and millions of other people put the code in.

    well done. your first thread full of venom. /ticks list
  • Deleted user 29 April 2011 15:47:01
    I don't remember but do you have to put the security code in each time you buy/add funds?

    It definitely went in the first time a card was used.

    @Aargh:
    If it only went in the first time wouldn't that give more credence to them having it stored?
    That is seriously bad news if true...

    No Aargh. Not every time. Just the first time you enter your card details into the system.

    This seems a little tepid compared to the comments i've read over the years. I do see some venom being spat a bit though. Just a tad.

    I dunno - might be that it just has to be validated by the company you're trying to buy from for it to work then it forgets about it.

    Amazon and iTunes don't ask every time either.

    we should have a mod merge the "royal wedding", "Match.com" and the "PS3 maintenace" thread together. Now that would be "the thread of the next 1000 years"
