RUMOR: PSN Database Consisting of 2.2Million Credit Cards Up for SALE
Rumors are surfacing from various underground "credit card" trading forums and through twitter that a huge section of PSN Database containing Personal details and 2.2 Million Working Credit Cards Numbers (With the much-needed CVV2 code) is now up for sale. The Whole database would be sold to the highest bidder, The hackers tried to sell the database to SONY but they simply refused. Here's a funny Parody AD Sony published after recent attacks which hit PSN and SOE:

Discussion about #psnhack and possible speculation about the hackers being from Europe Logs - efnet - #ps3dev - 2011-04-26
trixter, people I know had a shell on the psn servers
did you know that sony didn't disable the function that sets the psn server under maintenance ?
The hackers that hacked PSN are selling off the DB. They reportedly have 2.2 million credits cards with CVVs #psnhack
Sony was supposedly offered a chance to buy the DB back but didn't #psnhack
@mikkohypponen That is what is going around on some underground forums. The DB contains pretty much everything
@the_pc_doc That is what I thought but the guys selling it say that they have CVV2 numbers
@RiquezJP Well not properly securing your server breaks compliance as far as I know.
@RangerRick Yeah, this information about the CVV2 numbers could be bogus. The guys selling the DB could just be making it up.
Supposedly the hackers selling the DB says it has: fname, lnam, address, zip, country, phone, email, password, dob, ccnum, CVV2, exp date
No, I have not seen the DB so I can not verify that it is true
Its still unclear whether the database really does exist or the hackers are making it up. However, A guy over at http://psx-scene.com did managed to get screenshots which suggests suggests the database is complete, and also contains over 150,000 German accounts, You can see them for yourself below:
