Heads Up! PS accounts have been hacked again.

Early yesterday I lost access to my playstation account saying that the email &/or password was incorrect - I know the details were correct, visited the PS help forum & found that this has been happening to other users too.
After contacting support via Twitter I managed to get onto live chat which sorted out the problem, I then immediately turned on two factor authentication.
This is just a warning for those who haven't yet set up two factor authentication that accounts are being attacked again.

Yep seen a few people on another forum that have issues in the last few weeks. Both did not have 2fa enabled .

Its been available for a few months now, everyone should be using it to hopefully prevent these things happening.
