Suspect purchases from the PlayStation Network have appeared to those affected, though it remains unclear how the accounts are hacked.
"There has been a slew of chain letters circling around the PlayStation Network with URLs linking to these code generator websites; it is believed that these websites are loop hole hacks to obtain your personal information, opening them could be dangerous," reports .
The chain emails going around the PlayStation Network that have code generator site URLS should be deleted immediately. It's unclear exactly how these are exploiting user accounts but it's heavily advised for now to remove any credit card details.
For the extra cautious - you might want to change that PSN password. Chain emails are always a risky thing and should be given nothing but the delete key. The emails obviously contain a script or two that exploit a rather horrible hole in Sony's security.
No word from the corporate giant yet.
