In a recent blog post on its web sites, Sony Computer Entertainment America got to share more info about the criminal intrusion to the Playstation Network that worries many users about the illegal access to clients’ personal info.

One of the statements on Sony’s web site may give a bit of comfort, at least when it’s about access to credit credit info: “All of the data was protected, and access was restricted both physically and through the perimeter and security of the network. The entire credit card table was encrypted and we have no evidence that credit card data was taken.”

However, the same cannot be said about other yet important info: “The personal data table, which is a separate data set, was not encrypted, but was, of course, behind a very sophisticated security system that was breached in a malicious attack.”

Sony has asked for cooperation to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in San Diego, CA, to solve this serious problem. Meanwhile, some politicians have asked for an explanantion in the US and UK. The subject of electronic data is a very delicate one and of utmost importance for the British people, and they can count on the Data Privacy Act for support.

En un reciente comunicado publicado en sus sitios web, Sony Computer Entertainment America comparte más información acerca de la intrusión criminal a la PlayStation Network que preocupa a varios de sus clientes por el acceso illegal a información personal.

Una de las declaraciones de Sony puede dar un poco de calma, por lo menos al tratarse de acceso a info de tarjetas de créditos: “todos los datos estaban protegidos, la tabla de los datos de tarjetas de crédito estaban encriptados y no tenemos evidencia que esos datos han sido robados.

Sin embargo, lo mismo no se puede decir de otra información: “la tabla de datos personales que se encontraba en otro set de datos no estaba encriptada pero sí se encontraba bajo un sistema de seguridad sofisticado que fue penetrado en este ataque”, señalo Patrick Seybold.

Sony ha pedido la cooperación de la Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) en San Diego, CA, en este serio problema por el que atraviesa. Mientras tanto, unos políticos han pedido una explicación en los Estados Unidos y en el Reino Unido. El tema de datos electrónicos es de suma importancia y ahora preocupación para los ingleses, y cuentan con el respaldo del Acta de Protección de Datos.
