Sony have provided an update on the now 7 day outage of the Playstation Network which has been down due to an external intrusion into the system. In their latest update they have said it is likely that personal information (such as name and address and purchase history) has been compromised as well as Credit Card information if you’ve kept it on the system for purchases.
