I'm glad you think sitting on that information for a week is "fast". But when it comes to my livelihood and financial well being, any hesitancy is too much.

If you want a good example of how a company should handle a security breach was the late April hacking of Epsilon, which is linked to Best Buys customer records. On April 22nd, a security breach was discovered and it was unknown how much information had been lifted, if any, on April 22nd, I received an email from Best Buy/Epsilon warning me of possible card theft/phishing attempts that might arise from said breach. As well as what I should beware of and how to protect myself.

EDIT: sorry, their exact words were that they delayed notice because they didnt want to "lead [Sony's customers] to take unnecessary actions if the information was not fully corroborated by forensic evidence."
Thanks for doing the legwork, and cosigned.
