SOE: No Personal Information Was Exposed Or Lost
With the recent breach of the PlayStation Network's security, concerned PS3 users are wondering how far the damage stretches.
Many have assumed that because their PSN and Qriocity data has been compromised, their personal information stored with Sony Online Entertainment products was also in jeopardy. Obviously, this whole mess has been a hot topic in Sony's forums, and SOE representatives are on hand to confirm that gamers can feel safe with SOE:
"We have been conducting a thorough investigation and, to the best of our knowledge, no customer personal information got out to any unauthorized person or persons."
However, they do add the caveat that they continue to investigate, and should they find any evidence of personal data exposure or loss, they will "promptly notify customers." They do remind us that "SOE's systems and databases are separate from PSN's," which sort of explains how service for Free Realms and DC Universe Online has been restored.
By the way, SOE plans to "make good" on the downtime players suffered (although they haven't said exactly how), and they plan to hold a bunch of in-game events in the coming weeks.
