Sony Hacked, AGAIN!!!


Sony had disabled the site intended to help users after a hacker attack in April, after finding more vulnerabilities. Undisclosed site is designed to help 77 million PlayStation Network users to reset their passwords. This issue represents a setback again for Sony, after a fierce attack of hackers who get into their network.

Dan Race, a spokesman for Sony, said that their companies find security holes on those sites that allow hackers to break through the user's personal data which they had previously stolen. "If I have your email and your birth date, then I can go into your account," said Race, giving the parable.

As a result of these findings, Sony on Wednesday had to temporarily turn off the password reset page PlayStation Network, as well Qriocity music service.

"Once repaired, we will immediately turn back the page," added Race.

Meanwhile, the Japanese government is still blocking PSN service in Japan to be restored, calling their explanations about their security measures “lacking” – a measure which angered many PSN users, but now looks increasingly justified.

  1. lmao SONY really shot themselves in the foot with that whole "no Linux allowed" ordeal. It's just snowballing. I just wonder if they can even make a comeback... I know I can't trust them anymore. Who wants to buy my PS3? ツ

  5. Seriously. Maybe it's time they just quit. I think everyone has made up their minds to go get an Xbox. This is the only reason PC gaming would ever make a comeback.
