PSN Service Restoration Update, Internal Testing Underway


Sponsored Links
173w ago - As a follow-up to yesterday's PSN updates, Sony's Senior Director of Corporate Communications & Social Media Patrick Seybold has posted another brief PlayStation Network update as follows:

As you may know, we've begun the process of restoring the service through internal testing of the new system. We're still working to confirm the security of the network infrastructure, as well as working with a variety of outside entities to confirm with them of the security of the system. Verifying the system security is vital for the process of restoration. Additional comprehensive system checks and testing are still required, and we must complete that process before bringing the systems online.

As you've heard us say, our utmost priorities are the security of the network and ensuring your data is safe. We won't restore the services until we can test the system's strength in these respects.

When we held the press conference in Japan last week, based on what we knew, we expected to have the services online within a week. We were unaware of the extent of the attack on Sony Online Entertainment servers, and we are taking this opportunity to conduct further testing of the incredibly complex system.

We know many of you are wanting to play games online, chat with your friends and enjoy all of the services PlayStation Network and Qriocity services have to offer, and trust me when I say we're doing everything we can to make it happen. We will update you with more information as soon as we have it. We apologize for the delay and inconvenience of this network outage.

Like all the other stuff they are still struggling to justify doing, its really just a bunch of hooey that they have all this info anyways, and they are not securing it better...

Anonymous have strongly denied being behind these attacks & the data theft. Anonymous were only behind the DDoS attacks which are unrelated to the data theft, again reread Sonys response.
7. Have you identified the individual(s) responsible for the breach?
No.

Sony have only said the DDoS attacks made it easier for the server intrusion to go undetected, the rest is all hype and has been taken out of context. I suggest rereading the original documents and press releases again and not the media's interpretation of the releases, nowhere do Sony actually blame anonymous for the theft

Also a shiny new breach for Sony, data stolen containing names and addresses of 25000 sweepstakes competition entrants from 2001: [Register or Login to view links]

I wonder how they're going to justify storing that info for 10 years

anonymous didn't deny being behind the attack, they did however deny stealing any information..

sony are blaming anonymous claiming there is a file left there by the hackers saying anonymous and inside we are legion..

Thanks bro, so the damage has been done and now the road to recovery as we can see is bad. The freebies they give is still too little though..

OK again, it wasn't anonymous, even Sony aren't accusing Anonymous, reread Sonys response. Sony are blaming anonymous for distracting them using the DDoS attacks and claim this distraction led to the hack going undetected for so long without saying anonymous were behind the theft.

Which is also nonsense, if anonymous hadn't declared all out war on Sony which caused Sony to review their security the hack would probably still be undetected.

The attackers don't want anything Sony can give them anymore, all they wanted were the details to sell and they have those.
