Sony yet to determine PSN account data security

The most serious network outage in the history of the PlayStation Network has left the security of its accounts in the air, PCWorld reported on Monday. The PSN and Qriocity services went down on Wednesday night, but Sony representative Satoshi Fukuoka didn't have information on whether or not credit cards and other data had been exposed. The company has blamed the downtime only on an "external intrusion" that it wanted to test against before it went back online.

Fukuoka promised that, if Sony discovered a breach, it would inform PS3 owners. Sony has missed its ambiguous promise of bringing back network access in two days as it rebuilds the network to make it more secure. Some if not all users still have access to third-party services such as Netflix.
