On May 17th, Howard Stringer which is the Sony chief said that the PlayStation network outage as a hiccup and mentioned that no network is ever 100% secure of attacks.
The PlayStation Network (PSN) went down on April 20th and then came back to normal on May 2nd but there were still issues remaining on the network Stringer said. The reason for the PSN problem was because it was attacked by online criminals (Hackers). Also, Stringer stated that the PlayStation Network is a never ending process.
Sony has been working out with the law enforcement to figure out who were the hackers that caused the PSN to be down for around 12 days and as a right now the only thing they know is that the Sony’s SOE servers included a clandestine cyber group which is Anonymous.
Now Sony is offering ID theft protection since some credit cards might be obtained by attackers which is a really good initiative. This initiative is a great welcome back initiative for users so that they could feel more protected.
