    Why I won't upgrade my PS to CC.

    And this is why we'd rather have boxed editions of your software because this is the second time you muppets with your "cloudy-distribution, software-service delivery, monthly payment" crap have proved that you simply cannot be trusted with our details and more importantly with our credit/debit card details!

    "...If the passwords were cracked, perhaps by using rainbow tables to look for leaked hashes that corresponded with weak passwords, it might have been possible to upload false earning warnings or similar fake news in order to manipulate stock prices and profit from the resulting confusion.

    Thankfully, there is no evidence that anything like this has happened..."

    D'ahhh, crap.

    Hack attack

    I found two credit cards with foreign charges for a dollar- One in GB and the other in France.. They're on the euro and flagged immediately for attempting to put a debit charge on a credit card.

    It's a pain to close and get a new card

    I'm male and the perps are claiming to be a ladies garment shop with the name 12345.. Now tht's origional?

    Even the charges are as lame as the attack..
