Update: It looks like a lot of people are saying the accounts are fake.

It looks like hackers are at it again, and this time DerpTrolling is claiming responsibility. They have breached PSN as well as 2K games and Windows Live. They have posted accounts and passwords of users.

This is not the first time the DerpTrolling crew has been on the hacking scene. They sent a DDoS attack on Blizzard’s World of Warcraft servers after the launch of Warlords of Draenor. It was done not to be malicious but to show that there were weaknesses in the system. However, they were not taken seriously and so they did this to prove their point.

DerpTrolling claims to have over 7 million accounts and passwords accross several platforms. They also have around 500,000 credit card information.

We should be hearing from a few of these companies soon regarding this breach and their plans on securing their server or the denial of a breach. Either way I would not take a chance and suggest you change your passwords. And ever since the major breach of PSN 3 years ago, I have switched to using PSN giftcards as payment instead of using my credit card.
