PS3 NETWORK, If the gaming network is down and you know it, clap your hands. You should hear the sound of clapping furiously emanating from the headquarters of Sony, because we are now on the fourth day of stop PlayStation Network.
For those of you still scratching your head about why the console is to return error message “80710A06″ when trying to connect online to play some Mortal Kombat, Portal 2 and SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs talk, a bad week for the network to lower-recap.
The blackout began officially on Wednesday with Sony’s own notes that night, that “We are aware of certain features of the PlayStation Network is down.” The note came from the mouth, er, the key senior director of corporate communications and social media Patrick Seybold. And that was just the beginning.
Seybold jumped back on the Sony PlayStation blog on Thursday with a bit of bad news: The network was down, Sony was investigating, and could be a day or two before the players can go online and excerpts from his friends again. The online community reacted with some frustration, but patience is not the main services online console have not been down for long unexplained periods of time before.
Seybold Friday rolled around and brought the news as before: Red is still down. However, it did shed some light on the reasons behind the downtime. According to Seybold, Sony purpose shut the network down to face an “intrusion” that hit the PlayStation Network and service company Qriocity.
Sony did not go into further details as to what “intrusion” could have been, but unverified reports suggest that a denial of service for the main server PlayStation Network. In addition, another denial of service attacks allegedly went after PlayStation network servers that house user account information and, as reported by PlayStation Universe, the development administrator accounts are violated even at one point.
Initial suggestions pointed to Anonymous, the group hactivist the focus of Sony with alleged denial of service attacks. The expert’s thought they had returned to Anonymous increased its campaign of retaliation against Sony for the lawful exercise of the company against the supposed PS3 Jailbreaker George Hotz.
According to a blog update Saturday Seybold; Sony is taking this unexpected time to rebuild its infrastructure, even better than before, hence the continued delay.
“While this task is time consuming, we decided it was worth the time to provide the additional security system,” wrote Seybold.
Sony officials have not yet been the subjects of ETA for the network may come back. However, the source speaks of PlayStation Universe says Japanese servers should begin reappearing on Monday with U.S. and the EU servers break out again on Tuesday.
