So the free downloadble game "Super Credit Scam" isn't a big hit?

Hmm let me guess. Hacked accounts are only those of people who used same password for PSN and the site generating code :)

I didn't go to the site I just opened it when the message popped up,so I'm not screwed right?

What's a point system?



I think that site wants to see PSN fail, they made this story up to make everyone delete PSN accounts so that SONy & PS3 would be dooooooooooomed!

Wait, Darth. I thought that word only had 1 o?

 

Being domed is dooooooooooooooomed!

 

OT - this is not a hack. Someone correctly pointed out that this is fishing, and there is all the difference in the world

 

If I go up to someone and politely ask them for money under false pretences, it is not a mugging.



It's only phishing if you enter the information. If just going to the site gives them access to your account, it's a hack.

Getting a bit paranoid aren't we ? you can't hack an account through PSN messages.

You get hacked if you go to the link in the spam message.  I don't see how they do it but they seem to know how.
