May 4, 2011 by USA Post
Playstation Network Back, There have been a couple very good week for PlayStation Network users, the popular online game portal maintained by Sony. Sometime after April, hackers managed to worm their way into the PSN and Qriocity, Sony’s music service owned and streaming video. To prevent further damage – and to halt the loss of valuable information for users – Sony closed PSN, Sony representatives acknowledged at a news conference Thursday.
So when the Sony PlayStation Network is back online? This week, probably. In the same press conference, held at Sony headquarters in Tokyo, Sony, Kazuo Hirai executive apologized to the players, and promised that the PSN would live again on Friday. When the network becomes, added Hirai, according to eWeek, become stronger and safer than ever.
In a press release on the PlayStation blog, Patrick Seybold, a Sony representative, announced that the PlayStation 3 could have a “forced update system software” that “require all users registered PlayStation Network to change their passwords from the account before signing on the service. As an additional layer of security, the password can be changed only on the PS3 itself on which the account is activated, or via e-mail confirmation validated. ”
Sony, Seybold continued, “is conducting a thorough investigation and continuing work with the police to pursue and prosecute those responsible for unlawful intrusion.” As previously reported, Sony has not ruled out the possibility that the credit card information was stolen in the attack, but so far, as the gap appears to be minimal.
And at least oneanlyst said Sony was right to close PSN when it did. “For the response to incidents of” crisis mode “, could hardly have asked for better,” Jon Heimerl, director of strategic security for Solutionary recently told eWeek.
