This is completely Sony's fault. They were asked if they were taking the SoE servers off line, and they replied that they were a different network and not at risk.

What they should have done is taken them down too at that point for a security review.

Oh, and a clickable version of the link above:

Sony REALLY screwed the pooch. So what are we up to now 100 million with compromised private information?

I guess they're trying to outdo Microsoft's RRoD. Your move, MS.

I've been doing my research on which credit cards offer virtual cards that you can use in order to obfuscate your actual card number.

Citibank offers Virtual Account Numbers.
BofA has a similar feature called Shop Safe.

Something to consider. I am moving all my recurring online payments to VANs. I'm entering full paranoia mode.

Do recurring payments work with VANs? I thought they usually had very close expiration dates.

I had an unidentified charge show up on my card today. I'm trying to track down the source, but so far it seems fraudulent. Time to cancel, but it'll be such a pain, because I use that card several times every day. To be without it while waiting for the new one to show up, is going to really disrupt my life.

Oh good, I found the source of the charge. It should have not been billed, so the company reversed it.
