Playstation Network Security Gaps Found Back

After announcing that the PlayStation Network re-operated in stages with the claim that an increase in security system, a re-discovered security flaw that allows the legitimate account owner can not enter the PSN site. Security holes that come from the exploitation of two personal data that is the account owner's birth date and e-mail address.

The discovery of security holes started from posts made in blogs that mention that he held a simple experiment with a party that allegedly able to outsmart the security hole by providing two personal data that is e-mail address and date of birth. A few minutes later, the PSN account that "deliberately sacrificed" it could not be accessed by entering the wrong reasons following user names or passwords.

Not long after, an email from Sony received who preach that from the PSN account password had been changed. In fact, it has not done. Allegedly, these security holes to exploit the mechanism of replacement password by Sony after PSN paralyzed for 22 days due to cyber attacks and data breaches resulting in 24.6 million owner accounts.

After the blog reported this incident to the Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE), site improvement for a few hours to patch these vulnerabilities.

After burglarized on April 20, 2011 and was paralyzed for 22 days, PSN re-operated in stages. The procedures to be followed by the owner of the account so go back to the PSN is to replace their passwords with the new. This method is claimed to be an effort to anticipate the misuse of personal data that was burglarized in the cyber attacks that occurred on 16 and 17 April.

Break-ins occurred on their servers in San Diego, California, United States. Other information may also be stolen also includes 12,700 credit card numbers following expiration dates although it insists there is no credit card security code data that is leaking. In addition, there is also information in the form of 10 700 direct debit account from some customers from Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, and Spain.

The type of information I like the thief who burglarized his name, address, electronic mail address, birth date, gender, telephone numbers, login identification, following some of his password. Account information is stolen directly debut as bank account numbers, account holder name, account name, and address of account holder.
