Sony Online Entertainment Apparently Unaffected by PSN Data Leak

UPDATE: SOE has clarified that "SOE's systems and databases are separate from PSN's."

Sony Online Entertainment, a division of Sony that develops both online and console titles, is reporting that their data is safe from the recent attack and subsequent data leak the PSN network is experiencing. Last week, SOE reported that their servers had been compromised in the same attack that shuttered the PSN network.

In a statement issued on their forums today around 1:15 PM (PST) by Director Global Community Relations Linda Carlson on their community forums, SOE said:

"We wanted to update you on the status of our examination of the SOE system intrusion we announced last week. We have been conducting a thorough investigation and, to the best of our knowledge, no customer personal information got out to any unauthorized person or persons. We are continuing that investigation and monitoring the situation carefully; should the situation change, we will -- of course -- promptly notify you."

Responsible for games on the PS3 like DC Universe Online, Free Realms, and Magic: The Gathering Tactics, SOE is also responsible for handling several extremely popular PopCap ports like Plants vs. Zombies and Bejeweled 2.

While it is unclear how deep this PSN leak goes, for now, SOE users can breath a sign of relief.
