Peter Bright:

The hackers retrieved account information from the database. They claim there are more than a million accounts in total; their BitTorrented dump just contained a sample. The database contained information about a variety of different account types, apparently related to different promotions and features operated by the company. Different sets of accounts, but with one major feature in common: they included plaintext passwords.

Wow. Also, don’t entrust any of your information with Sony. Ever.
