Hackers force Sony to shut down PSN.

Post  Bugman on Fri Apr 22, 2011 9:12 pm

From Sony:

An external intrusion on our system has affected our PlayStation Network and Qriocity services. In order to conduct a thorough investigation and to verify the smooth and secure operation of our network services going forward, we turned off PlayStation Network & Qriocity services on the evening of Wednesday, April 20th. Providing quality entertainment services to our customers and partners is our utmost priority. We are doing all we can to resolve this situation quickly, and we once again thank you for your patience. We will continue to update you promptly as we have additional information to share.

So PSN could be down for God knows how long. And this isn't gonna help the hackers/piracy/homebrew debated at all either.

Meanwhile, the FBI has issued 40 arrest warrants against anonymous members.

**** just got real.

I'm not sure if that's how I feel, or the opposite.

This was posted back in February. They talk about all the security flaws the PSN has. People were already hacking (or knew how to) the PSN back then. They even tried to warn Sony (someone called Sony about the security flaws), nothing happened.

In other words, Sony are retards.

If I recall they really only go after people for good reasons. That seems like a damn good reason for them to attack it.

You'd think that after one time, they'd go through large efforts to fix and secure it. A lot.

Group of hackers who attacked PSN and SOE planning a third attack and also plan to publicize all or some of the information they were able to copy from the servers.

I may be exaggerating, but this could potentially put an end to Sony Computer Entertainment.

I hope the FBI will be all eyes and ears on Sony's servers while the hackers attack again.
The FBI sitting there like "come at me bro".

If they somehow take out Xbox Live which I say 10% chance, I would laugh hard. I say 85% chance it is Sony related again..

Worst case scenario they take out steam and we miss a few games of Team Fortress 2.

I punch those numbers into my calculator and it makes a smiley face.

(Nah but for real, Its just Sony related.)
