Agreed. Especially now when we are paying for the pleasure of no access to our games. Great, just great!

There's nothing Sony could have done to prevent this though. Whereas back in 2011 there were many things they could have done to keep users information more secure.

Remember this is just a DDoS attack not a hack.

Same result though. No access to our games and this time we are paying.

Oh, these idiots are just inviting trouble I see. The attacks, even if done by kids, could be written off as a bit of malicious mischief. But by the postings on Twitter, the threats and claims of terrorism is gonna invite major law issues.

And if they were who they claimed they were, why target a gaming companies and not, oh financial institutions and government websites?

I'm watching a baseball game right now, so haven't tried playing anything. Is it affecting gameplay on multiplayer games, or is it just account access and the store?

No, not the same result. In 2011 PSN was down for a long time - several weeks if memory serves - and there was a serious security breach where hackers possibly made off with users' personal info.

Now that was worth a couple of free games. One day of not being able to game online? Not so much.

The PSN was hacked in 2011 and when Sony realised there had been a breach they shut the network down to sort it out.

This is a DDOS attack which brought down the network, it could have happened to any company, it's not easy to prevent.

The latest from the US PS blog:

Quote:
Like other major networks around the world, the PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network have been impacted by an attempt to overwhelm our network with artificially high traffic.

Although this has impacted your ability to access our network and enjoy our services, no personal information has been accessed.

We will continue to work towards fixing this issue and hope to have our services up and running as soon as possible.

We regret any inconvenience this may have caused.

The network is scheduled to be down for maintenance tomorrow anyway so most we'll lose out on is today probably. I expect it'll be up and working after tomorrow's maintenance.

I even noticed BBC's website was 503 when I tried getting on it earlier, could just be a coincidence, it seems to be ok now.

When people are back to work after the bank holiday (which incidentally is forecast to be poor weather wise) great timing!

Seeing reports that an SOE rep has confirmed the FBI are currently investigating over the bomb threat.

Doubt that as this isn't like the last time PSN was hacked. And this time it wasn't even hacked. There's maintenance tomorrow anyways so it will probably just be affected by this today. Not like it's going to be an ongoing thing.
