Personal data, especially credit card numbers, should be stored in a highly encrypted format so it is useless to anyone that gets ahold of it. Or better yet, don’t store personal data at all.
I don’t use any Play Station devices but I hope this incident does indeed costs Sony the billions of dollars listed above. Maybe this would make Sony and all the other companies take better precautions with our data.

Funny how these politicians DEMAND from others but vaporize when they are asked a simple question. The arrogance of these people are sickening. This is another slime ball politician who claimed over and over that he did time in Vietnam while in the military and it was proven he was lying through his teeth about it. This pompous ass should DEMAND some honesty from HIMSELF before demanding anything from Sony. Frigging self righteous hypocrite.
