In what could amount to one of the biggest data breaches ever, a hacker stole the names, date of births and possibly credit card numbers of 77 million people who play online video games through Sony’s PlayStation console. Tens of thousands of people around the world pay monthly fees to play online games like “God of War 3” or the much-anticipated “La Noire” coming out next month. We talk with E.J. Hilbert, a former FBI agent and the current senior vice president at Arixmar, a security consulting firm.
