    Because SOE's customer databases don't get hacked enough?

    Russia & US based customer databases will be seperate. Innova is handling that end.

    guess... what can you expect from a company which ran lineage 2 pirate servers until they got enough money to start their business legally?

    Other companies sequester their customer data, and or encrypt things like passwords, CC#s, and other details.

    SOE and Sony didn't, which is why they "had" to offer free credit monitoring for a year to mitigate liability.

    What other company did that.

     

    And as a side note, for a number of reasons, Russia is the top country for "criminal hacking" and most other kinds of computer based fraud and other crimes. Even ahead of China, according to the FBI, so were I operating a business there, my computer security would have to be top notch.

    Something SOE is not known for.

    Let's hope their local partner is better.
