The hacker dickheads if discovered get prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law thankfully.

that rarely happens. credit card companies never go after the people who use stolen credit cards because it is more costly to bring them to justice than to claim the loss through their insurance. i have been the victim of identity theft twice and both times i tried to ask my credit card company for the names of those who used my card without permission and the reply i get is always the same. they cant give me names because they dont have to go after the individuals. and that i should not bother since i had zero liability for the fraudulent charges. i wanted to take the person who used my card illegally to small claims court to try and recover the amount of time i had to take from work in order to fix things with my creditors and spending money on placing security checks on my credit file to make sure nothing else is going on with my personal and financial data. sadly this is probably what will happen with sony. visa already released a notice to their customers telling them to simply sit and wait for something to happen since they are not liable for fraud charges. that is not very comforting since they are not actively going after the thieves who stole the customer database from sony.
