That's rather harsh use of language isn't it?
The hackers tried huge numbers of usernames and passwords, probably taken from a hack on another site. 93,000 of those matched usernames and passwords used on PSN and/or SOE. In the great majority of cases that is all that happened before Sony shut them out. In a few cases there was further activity and Sony knows which cases they were and will reimburse lost funds.
Hardly "ransacked". In fact more like "Sony proves they've learned their lesson in huge brute-force attack".
