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. PlayStation Network requires a "CVV" security number when a user registers their credit card details in their account. Thus, according to the platform authentication function, when a user tries to acquire access to the account from another PSN console will request the CVV associated with the registered credit card.
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.
To protect yourself from the attacks the most important of all is to turn it on two-factor authentication. This way, if someone attempts to sign in to your account, you will automatically be notified. Additionally, you can set one security question.
Η Sony has not yet commented on the issue. Probably have a statement in the next few hours.
