177w ago - Update: The [Register or Login to view links] has now posted the following message regarding their PSN restoration timeline update, to quote:

"I know you all want to know exactly when the services will be restored. At this time, I can't give you an exact date, as it will likely be at least a few more days. We're terribly sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work through this process."

Today Bloomberg (linked above) reports that Sony expects PSN services, including Qriocity, to be fully restored by May 31, 2011.

To quote: "Sony Corp.'s PlayStation Network and Qriocity online services remain shut as of today, Shigenori Yoshida, a Tokyo-based spokesman said. Sony is uncertain when it can resume the services, Yoshida said by phone today.

The company is in the process of adopting an improved security system and its plan to restart the services fully by May 31 is unchanged, he said. Sony shut down the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services April 20 because of possible data theft by hackers.

The maker of PS consoles had planned to restart partial operations within a week after boosting the level of security system, the company said May 1."

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.
