[NYT] Hackers Claim to Have PlayStation Users’ Card Data - Page 5

You are making way too many assumptions, as always.

If you've ever seen a real credit card, you'd know you can't just easily print them. If you had any idea what you were talking about, you'd know that when you use a card in store then you'd have to scan the card. So even if you were to fake a card, it wouldn't scan. Now, I'll assume the thieves have one of the machines to print data onto the cards. Now, they'd have to forge all the data onto the card, which you'd need a hell of a lot more than the visible data embossed on the side.
In the off chance you make it far enough and the card doesn't work, and you attempt to buy with the number, the cashier would have to punch in the numbers individually. At this point, in all the events I've ever had to do this, ID was requested at that moment.

Actually it is quite easy to get magnetic strip writers and the cards for them. Then add a thin decal and wala a credit card. The information that is on the strip is quite simple to figure out. All you would need to do is scan one of your own credit cards and then insert the correct data. To take this a step further you could easily change the data on the strip of your personal card so that when you scanned it it would give out the stolen information while still looking perfectly legal. Next how often does a cashier actually ask to see your card? Do you not 99% of the time just scan it in the reader and the cashier never even sees the card...... That is just in store purchases....... over the net is much easier.

If my card doesn't scan, I am always asked for ID. Now that I think about it, I am asked for ID randomly even if my card scans fine. I can't say that would happen elsewhere, but it could still pose a problem to a thief. Also, I don't think forging a credit card would be nearly as easy as it sounds, but I could be wrong. Anyway, we are talking about in store purchases here. As for online, it is totally easy to get by with it.

Source it. If you are talking about that badly sourced, and badly titled thread that popped up then take the time to actually read the source and the updates within it.

Why would they brag about it? That just makes people aware of it and makes it harder for them to cash in...

Not really.. Very few people will still see this article, nor know this until it's too late.

People are ignorant of things going on around them, that's the one thing you can count on.

Question

Lets say I got a flimsy job at Sony as doing some small maintenance the servers. Got partial admin rights working with the more paid IT guys. So you notice a hole in some outdated stuff. So you know can steal the stuff then connect from a internet cafe or someone else or let your online mates help you out making it look like a hack job. Meanwhile you stole the data months ago and were already making use of it but got suspicious someone was maybe onto so you organize a big smash grab. No one would suspect a inside job would they?
