So, it took a few weeks for Sony to get everything in order after its er... hiccup in exposing the details of everyone on the PlayStation Network. And, now it appears that the Japanese government's worries that Sony hadn't really fixed the problem or made its system secure appear to be coming true. There are reports this morning that the new password reset system has been exploited, such that you could change anyone's password if you have their email and date of birth. You know where you could have gotten that info? From the original hacked data. Right. *Hic*
