The official PlayStation Twitter accounts have just finishing cleaning up a bunch of tweets posted by hacker group “OurMine”. The tweets, which have been archived by Destructoid, show the hackers posting as both @PlayStation and @PlayStation_BR (PlayStation Brasil).
The tweets ask for a PlayStation representative to contact the group, and to also “Subscribe to #DramaAlert”.
The line “PlayStation, contact us we got PlayStation Network database leaked!” makes me a little concerned, since gamers have a lot of personal data stored on the PlayStation servers. If the hacker’s claims are true, then here’s hoping Sony cracks down on this quickly.
OurMine has successfully hacked HBO, TechCrunch, and BuzzFeed in the past. More information about what they do, and their aims, are detailed below:
