Ps3 Hackers

Posted: April 26, 2011 by clgiblin in Uncategorized

Last week, Sony‘s online PlayStation network experienced a fatal failure because of a hacking attack. For  days users had been contacting Sony, but they remained silent. More than 60 million gamers around the world were unable to play their games with friends online or download demo games. Finally, on Tuesday, Sony reported that as a result of the attack, an “unauthorized person” had obtained personal information about account holders, including their names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and PlayStation user names and passwords. Even credit card numbers could have been accessed, and users are warned to monitor identify theft. This has not been the only problem Sony has had with the PlayStation online network. Will Sony be able to rebuild the network to be more secure and reduce their network problems for the future?
