RedEaredSlider writes: Several media outlets reported today that the PSN hackers have begun advertising their exploits on online forums. Looking to sell the information, which also includes customer names, passwords, and addresses, the hackers have priced the credit card database at $100,000 for 2.2 million credit card numbers, or about 4.5 cents for each one. There is even some evidence the hackers tried selling the credit card numbers back to Sony, though a company spokesperson denies it.
