A couple weeks ago, Sony’s Playstation Network was hacked by outside intruders, not once but twice, leaving the system down along with the information of a huge portion of its 60 million users compromised. It’s also being reported that the information of millions of credit and debit cards may be in the hands of a stranger.
While the specific details of Sony’s woes are slowly starting to surface, this event is only the latest in a recent trend of online privacy issues. Only a month ago in early April, a major email distribution service had their email system exposed allowing hackers to steal millions of email addresses registered with major corporations such as Citibank, Walmart, and Best Buy. Not to mention the privacy issues that have been brought up in regards to Facebook dating back several years, which are continually resurfacing.
