I wonder what the Japanese is for “when you are in a hole it’s usually a good time to stop digging“?
I read the new Sony press release with some bemusement; the one with regard to the loss of 25 million further customer details from Sony Online Entertainment. The release had the following statement:
information from an outdated database from 2007 containing approximately 12,700 non-US customer credit or debit card numbers and expiration dates (but not credit card security codes) and about 10,700 direct debit records listing bank account numbers of certain customers in Germany, Austria, Netherlands and Spain may have also been obtained.
I wonder if Sony are aware of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) since they are very effectively stating their non-compliance.
