Full disclosure and due diligence. I can't fault sony at the moment. Maybe if I had a PSN+ account, but really names, addresses, and passwords are not much worse than what goes in the phone book unless you use the same password for PSN as you do your bank account. If credit card information was stolen then Sony's got some trouble on their hands, but keeping mum, while investigating the situation is often necessary in order to complete the investigation. Furthermore they have publicly accepted the possibility of liability without having verified the data breach. That's fair enough for me. I'm checking my bank statements, but typically CC information is difficult to grab from a standards compliant organization. So, it's quite possible the standards need revised.

that's completely unverified at the moment.

"While there is no evidence at this time that credit card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility. If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, out of an abundance of caution we are advising you that your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may have been obtained."
