PlayStation vulnerability reveals credit card details!

PlayStation Network has been the victim of another great attack, which could leave the account of any user vulnerable to hackers ... and special information credit cards!

As you may know, This makes it a perfect choice for people with diabetes and for those who want to lose weight or follow a balanced diet.

Then the number provided will be compared to the number entered in database, to complete the process authentication.

In short, the vulnerability, what it does is allow for hackers to gain access to their victims' account without providing the relevant CVV code. This can not only provide access to the account itself, but also the related payment information.

The worst of the case is that the particular one vulnerability has been there for several years, and even counts already several victims.

Incidentally, the Sony he is aware of the issue but has never taken it seriously! According to sources, this is not a vulnerability of consoles, is a vulnerability of the PSN platform itself. Sony has been warned for some time, but the company ignored it by saying there was no danger.
