PSN has been compromised again, according to a post over a Slashdot.
It’s the infamous group Anonymous that makes the claim, and has as proof for the claim posted 3000 of the, said, leaked 10 million credentials on pastebin.
Sony has officially denied the claim in their Playstation twitter feed.
I can of course not verify who’s right…
So it has happened once again. This time it is battle.net that has got their pants down. Blizzard who runs battle.net as their centralized access control database for all Blizzard online games.
Refer to Blizzard for instructions on how to save your butt.

We need to do something about still relying on passwords for authentication.
This time it is Dropbox…

This will be a new category on the blog where I will try to list every site that got their passwords stolen. We will see that everyone are among good friends. It’s a both larger and smaller companies that’d think knew what they were doing.
We have LinkedIn, Nvidia, Yahoo among other fresh in memory. I will do my best to list all new occurances of leaked credentials.
I will also behind the scenes start working on two projects that will limit this problem. I will hopefully be able to officially publish one of the soon. The private blog posts will be public once this happens.
