"databases are separate" and safe.
DC Universe Online, Free Realms and other SOE users can breathe easy as no customer data "got out to any unauthorized person", or to their knowledge anyway.
It's not entirely comforting just yet as Sony was unaware personal information was being stolen last week as PSN was left bloodied in a ditch, and remains so. "SOE's systems and databases are separate from PSN's," clarified Sony Online.
SOE issued a statement to users on the forums yesterday at 1:15 PM (PST):
"We wanted to update you on the status of our examination of the SOE system intrusion we announced last week. We have been conducting a thorough investigation and, to the best of our knowledge, no customer personal information got out to any unauthorized person or persons. We are continuing that investigation and monitoring the situation carefully; should the situation change, we will -- of course -- promptly notify you."
On the PlayStation 3 DC Universe Online, Free Realms, and Magic: The Gathering Tactics are operated by Sony Online Entertainment. Our superhero alter-egos remain safe.
Sony Online Entertainment "separate" from PlayStation Network
