Yup, Sony Online Entertainment Got Hacked Too. Pssht.

SOE stresses that this was not a second attack, and is a repercussion of the original PSN attack.

Thankfully, while serious, there's a silver lining to every cloud: these credit cards were taken from an "outdated database" from circa-2007. Chances are some, if not all, of those cards will have expired now. The hackers also got their hands on "10,700 direct debit records of certain customers in Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, and Spain".

Given Sony Online Entertainment and SCE are different companies, it's odd that both should get hit by the same attack. SOE released a statement to clarify overnight: "While the two systems are distinct and operated separately, given that they are both under the Sony umbrella, there is some degree of architecture that overlaps. The intrusions were similar in nature. This is NOT a second attack; new information has been discovered as part of our ongoing investigation of the external intrusion in April."

Of course, it doesn't really matter whether it was a second attack or not: headlines with "Sony" and "credit card theft" in them just don't look good at the moment. What's worse is that public reaction was starting to sway. Bad times.
