" rel="nofollow">vivin writes: "ARS Technica reports that Sony has provided more information about its "external intrusion". It appears that personal information has been compromised. According to Sony, if you are on PSN, the following pieces of information have been compromised for sure: your name, your address (city, state, and zip), country, e-mail address, birthday, PSN password and login name.

Sony also stated that it was possible that your profile data (including purchase history and billing address), and security answers have been obtained. If you have a dependent on your account, their data may also be compromised."
