I found my Sony notification email, buried in my spam folder. And I thought it was BS because it came from Innovyx.net.
Apparently, it’s legit.
What do I need to do to accept the new PlayStation®Network Terms of Service?
On March 31, 2011, the PlayStation®Network Terms of Service and User Agreement will be updated. Some consumers may have already received an email from PlayStation_Network@playstation.innovyx.net informing you of the upcoming change.
So let me see if I’ve got this straight.
- Criminals have hacked Sony and made off with our personal information, including email addresses.
- Sony needs to notify us by email of the above fact.
- Sony emails us by way of a third party service, innovyx.net
Phishing emails purport to be from legitimate services but instead redirect you to criminal’s websites, perhaps through a “Man in The Middle” attack, where they ultimately send you to the legitimate site but do something to you while you pass through theirs. And that sure looks like what this silly service is doing.
Nice going Sony. Certainly NOT making me feel good about your post-attack attention to security.
