Submission + - PSN User Reporting Fraudulent Use Of Debit Card 5

_0xd0ad writes: Yesterday's story about the ongoing PSN outage ended with this ominous revelation: "An 'unauthorized person' has PSN users' 'name, address (city, state, zip), country, email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password and login, and handle/PSN online ID.' Billing address, password questions, and credit card info may also have been taken."

Now it appears that their worst fears may have been true. At least one PSN user has reported fraudulent charges being made to their debit card since the data leakage occurred. At this point it would probably be wise to immediately cancel any debit cards that you've used to make purchases on the PSN and to check your credit card activity frequently and report any unauthorized charges.
