Sony: credit cards were encrypted

Sony has revealed that credit card details held on its PlayStation Network were stored in encrypted files.

The news offers some hope to users worried about their personal data after the system was hacked.

The company had previously warned that card numbers and expiry dates may have been among the stolen data.

However, other information, including dates of birth and home addresses, did not have the same level of protection.

The issue of card security has been one of the main concerns for PlayStation Network users.
