    cali...
    They hit me about a week ago. Chat on the Olay station website fixed it up real quick.

    Thing about Sony is they have great upfront security but knee you get oust that's its a joke.

    Sort of like a big padlock on the front gate but using a string to hold your front door shut.

    More than likely they used a password from another recently breached site. Yes, you should have used 2 factor authentication but what you should do is check out haveibeenpwned.com to see if your information has been found in other account dumps. Also don't use the same password for other sites. Use a password manager. Its definitely handy.
