PSN個人情報盗難でダウン5日目。復旧は1週間先か:Sony PlayStation Network user data stolen

Sony officially announced that someone hacked its server and some PlayStation Network and Qriocity user data was compromised.  They're now working with a security firm, and it may take another week to rebuild the network.
PlayStation Network hacked, data stolen: how badly is Sony hurt?: 'The key piece of data for identity theft is the social security number, and that has not been compromised,' she told Ars.

So, don't give your info to unknown person...  Initially all eyes were on Anonymous who vowed in early April to target Sony in response to its legal action against PS3 hacker GeoHot, but Anonymous denies its responsibility.  It could have been a single hacker...
