Major security vulnerability discovered for PlayStation Network

Details are still sparse (and primarily in Japanese), but our Tokyo bureau just let us know that Sony's announced a fairly severe security vulnerability on the PlayStation Network, which would actually allow an attacker to access your account, personal information, and Wallet -- but not your credit card on file -- as well as change your password. Damn. More on this as it develops; in the mean time, keep a close eye on that account.

Suppose there isn't much danger in your PS3 being hacked, but still.


Edit: Hey, I wonder if this will have an effect on the huge PS3 folding farms?! Would anyone be low enough?

IMO that is pretty timely. They have to locate this flaw. Code a patch. Test the patch to make sure that it doesn't cause any other flaws and send it out.
