Users on the PlayStation Network have been reporting some serious issues regarding PlayStation Network code generator websites, these generator websites have reportedly hacked into people's personal info through PSN. Unfortunately, our Ironstar comrade Dom Guerrera was a victim of this new attack against PlayStation Network users. In his situation a credit card stored on his account was charged around $350 worth of PlayStation Network content that he didn't authorize. There has been a slew of chain letters circling around the PlayStation Network with URLs linking to these code generator websites; it is believed that these websites are loop hole hacks to obtain your personal information, opening them could be dangerous. Inside of the chain letter reported to effect your PlayStation Network account there is a link to a code generator website for "free" PlayStation Network content. Details on this situation are still coming in, we have contacted Sony for a response.
If you believe you have opened one of these tainted messages immediately do the following:
Delete your credit card information off of your PlayStation Network account using the official PlayStation website.
Change your email and password for your PlayStation Network account using the official PlayStation Network website.
Contact Sony PlayStation customer service 1800-345-7669, also contact your credit or debit card customer service representative.
Check your email tied to your PlayStation Network account for suspicious purchases.
As a precaution to these unknown hacks on against PlayStation Network users we recommend that you:
Delete any random chain messages, even if they are from friends. There is a way to view a small segment of messages sent to you on the PlayStation Network. If you suspect a message to be a chain letter containing the hack view the message (WITHOUT OPENING IT) by pressing (x) twice on the sent user's profile.
Block users who send you chain messages.
Contact Dom Guerrera through his profile if you think your situation is similar to his.
This issue does not involve general chain letters sent around PSN, the article is referring to chain letters containing PSN code generator website URLs specifically. Our colleague did not enter any credit card information into any malicious website. His PSN account information including his credit card info was somehow obtained through the PlayStation Network, because he opened the message sent to him. More PSN users have stepped forward and reported suspicious purchases appearing on their billing transactions. If you haven't noticed any suspicious activity on your account but you have opened one of these specific chain messages or went to a malicious code generator website on your PS3 we strongly recommend that you take precautions.
