PSN Hacked again????

Post by igoDrMacro on Wed Aug 15, 2012 2:27 pm

Infamous hacking group Anonymous claims to have hacked the PlayStation Network again. The following was posted on Twitter:

The group linked to a lengthy document of the data they purportedly mined, including e-mail addresses and what appears to be other encrypted information.

IGN has reached out to Sony for comment and will update when they hear back.

[Update] The list in question appears to be a copy of the posting from March 19.

[Update] Shane Bettenhausen, with business development at Sony Computer Entertainment America, says the claim is "totally fake."

[Update] Tweet has now been removed, Sony contines to state that the claim is fake.
-feeling like we have avoided a close one here, I think it's a good reminder to keep an eye on your accounts, as well as use good password security.

It appears we narrowly avoided a disaster here. The internet was blowing up yesterday during this time with everyone worrying that it happend again. It's funny because I have been a HUGE Sony fanboy since PS1, and last April the whole PSN hack is what pushed me away, and ever since I have been HUGELY back into PC. Point being during the scare yesterday, I thought "ok, this is it, I am done." and that is how I felt, if this happens to Sony again, I am done with them. I hope for all of us that does not happen. But even the mere thought makes me cringe.
