Yeah it is because that information (my name, phone number, address, email address, phone number) can now be sold to scammers/spammers.

Times like this I'm happy that I didn't buy anything from playstation network. The best security is my security unfortunately.

Happy that I have moved before and never updated my CC info or adress :) Invalid idientity activated :D Now that Sony have been caught, Hope that many big company will realize they need more security ( but that probably wont happen because it cost money )

Yup, I got this e-mail yesterday morning. What is funny is that in the e-mail they say that Sony would never contact us ( in the how to prevent scam section ) and they are actually contacting us via e-mail :P

Still better to take 5 mins of your time to get a new card, even if the data is out there as the encryption can be broken.
