Playstation account hacking

[USERGROUP=2]@Registered[/USERGROUP] please check your emails for any unauthorised purchases from PSN.

@MilkyMalky woke to emails for purchases he hasn't made and a quick check shows others reporting similar.

If in doubt change your password ASAP

I've seen a lot of people reporting this, apparently 2 step authentication goes live on the 24th meaning any account hijacks should be stopped.

Just an update.

GOOD NEWS, Sony were excellent, and I'm getting a refund in a week - I think helped by the fact the hack was through PayPal.

Recommend everyone checks their email, and reviews how they pay for things online through Sony. Credit is by far the safest way, I'll be using that from now on.

If the unfortunate does happen to you, please see handy link below:

Few reads of forums and it seems to be more on PayPal side than Sony but as it's linked it's one in the same.

Been using credit day one since I switched from wii to PS3 safer option and get a discount using cdkeys or bank of del.

I have password verification for any purchases after my little one clicked on and bought a map pack for Black Ops 2.

What a fucking waste of money.
