11 replies 626 views Edited May 10, 2013
So , a kid started threaten me about hacking me.I have never hacked on ps3 so i dont know how its works. After a while arguing with him he said.."(my real name) you are making these too easy...So, i'm wondering how he got to know my name so fast because to hack any account takes a while.

The problem with microphones is that they pick up background noise. It doesn't matter what type or which brand, there is always background noise. The person may have simply overheard someone in the background, or did a who-is search on your IP address.

Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

I don't know where they got your real name from, but in any event no one can hack your account unless they have your password.

I may have overhead a mom yelling at her son (we'll call him Mike for story sake).  She was asking him to do his chores, clean room, homework etc... "Michael when are you going to xxxxxxxxxx" and he was all like "soon Mom! I gotta finish this game."  Then I was all like "listen to and respect your parnets Mike. They got you that PS3." LOL >>>> "HOW DO YOU KNOW MY NAME!"

Unless you gave him your password to hack your PSN account, there's nothing to worry about since his threats are pretty bluff and you can put him on your block list so he can't bother you anymore.

Little kids that play COD all day don't know the first thing about actual hacking, mostly because they are now retarded from playing COD all day.
