PSN Back Down, Sony may have more work to do to start service to the PlayStation Network. The giant entertainment and electronics, announced today that its entire portfolio of online gaming, gambling forums and web sites back online today. After service resumed, however, users began to complain that no active Twitter long before it was available again.
“Playstation Network was backed up for about 10 minutes before going back for maintenance,” Tom tweeted Cranfield. “Good job Sony! “Playstation Network is back down servers seem to have crashed,” said Lee Fraser of Manchester, England, said in a Twitter message. Sony PlayStationEU twitter power user asked to be patient. “Please bear with us as we continue working to restore # PSN. We are experiencing very heavy traffic,” the source said.
Sony later announced a planned shutdown of its network services. “We expereiencing [sic] a heavy burden of resetting passwords and will be turning off the service for 30 minutes to clear the queue”, the company announced on its Web site Twitter. The service has been offline for almost four weeks after several of Sony’s servers were attacked between 17 April and 19 April, leading to exposure of personal data of more than 100 million customers who signed up for PlayStation Network, Qriocity, and Sony Online. Networks – used to download and play games, movies and music – were mysteriously unavailable for nearly a week before Sony revealed the intrusion. The company has said repeatedly that there is no evidence that the credit card information was stolen.
Sony said its service network that is available at the same time strengthened its security and announced earlier this week that it planned to restore “in the coming days.” The company still has not identified the perpetrator behind the security breach is the second largest in U.S. history, but has hinted that he believes the activist group Anonymous hackers may have been behind the violation.
