PostSubject: PSN Servers Down Sun Apr 24, 2011 4:17 pm

For the past 4 days, our proud company 'Sony Playstation' has been temporairly down due to 'hackers'. The cause was because of a jail-breaking ban issue which lead the hackers to hack Playstation. This problem has been occuring since Thursday till present day. This has caused quite an uproar for Playstation clients. Playstation refuses to talk about the problem and explain what the issue is now. All they have said is that, the servers should be up and ready to go by today. Hopefully the issue is disgarded today and that people can get back to their online experience.

Thank you for your patience while we work to resolve the current
outage of PlayStation Network & Qriocity services. We are currently
working to send a similar message to the one below via email to all of
our registered account holders regarding a compromise of personal
information as a result of an illegal intrusion on our systems. These
malicious actions have also had an impact on your ability to enjoy the
services provided by PlayStation Network and Qriocity including online
gaming and online access to music, movies, sports and TV shows. We have a
clear path to have PlayStation Network and Qriocity systems back
online, and expect to restore some services within a week.
We’re working day and night to ensure it is done as quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience and feedback.
Valued PlayStation Network/Qriocity Customer:
We have discovered that between April 17 and April 19, 2011, certain
PlayStation Network and Qriocity service user account information was
compromised in connection with an illegal and unauthorized intrusion
into our network. In response to this intrusion, we have:

  1. Temporarily turned off PlayStation Network and Qriocity services;
  2. Engaged an outside, recognized security firm to conduct a full and complete investigation into what happened; and
  3. Quickly taken steps to enhance security and strengthen our network
    infrastructure by re-building our system to provide you with greater
    protection of your personal information.

We greatly appreciate your patience, understanding and goodwill as we
do whatever it takes to resolve these issues as quickly and efficiently
as practicable.
Although we are still investigating the details of this incident, we
believe that an unauthorized person has obtained the following
information that you provided: name, address (city, state, zip),
country, email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password
and login, and handle/PSN online ID. It is also possible that your
profile data, including purchase history and billing address (city,
state, zip), and your PlayStation Network/Qriocity password security
answers may have been obtained. If you have authorized a sub-account for
your dependent, the same data with respect to your dependent may have
been obtained. While there is no evidence at this time that credit card
data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility. If you have provided
your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, out of
an abundance of caution we are advising you that your credit card number
(excluding security code) and expiration date may have been obtained.
For your security, we encourage you to be especially aware of email,
telephone, and postal mail scams that ask for personal or sensitive
information. Sony will not contact you in any way, including by email,
asking for your credit card number, social security number or other
personally identifiable information. If you are asked for this
information, you can be confident Sony is not the entity asking. When
the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services are fully restored, we
strongly recommend that you log on and change your password.
Additionally, if you use your PlayStation Network or Qriocity user name
or password for other unrelated services or accounts, we strongly
recommend that you change them, as well.
To protect against possible identity theft or other financial loss,
we encourage you to remain vigilant, to review your account statements
and to monitor your credit reports. We are providing the following
information for those who wish to consider it:
U.S. residents are entitled under U.S. law to one free credit report
annually from each of the three major credit bureaus. To order your
free credit report, visit www.annualcreditreport.com or call toll-free (877) 322-8228.
We have also provided names and contact information for the three
major U.S. credit bureaus below. At no charge, U.S. residents can have
these credit bureaus place a “fraud alert” on your file that alerts
creditors to take additional steps to verify your identity prior to
granting credit in your name. This service can make it more difficult
for someone to get credit in your name. Note, however, that because it
tells creditors to follow certain procedures to protect you, it also may
delay your ability to obtain credit while the agency verifies your
identity. As soon as one credit bureau confirms your fraud alert, the
others are notified to place fraud alerts on your file. Should you wish
to place a fraud alert, or should you have any questions regarding your
credit report, please contact any one of the agencies listed below.
Experian: 888-397-3742; www.experian.com; P.O. Box 9532, Allen, TX 75013
Equifax: 800-525-6285; www.equifax.com; P.O. Box 740241, Atlanta, GA 30374-0241
TransUnion: 800-680-7289; www.transunion.com; Fraud Victim Assistance Division, P.O. Box 6790, Fullerton, CA 92834-6790
You may wish to visit the web site of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission at www.consumer.gov/idtheft
or reach the FTC at 1-877-382-4357 or 600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW,
Washington, DC 20580 for further information about how to protect
yourself from identity theft. Your state Attorney General may also have
advice on preventing identity theft, and you should report instances of
known or suspected identity theft to law enforcement, your State
Attorney General, and the FTC. For North Carolina residents, the
Attorney General can be contacted at 9001 Mail Service Center, Raleigh,
NC 27699-9001; telephone (877) 566-7226; or www.ncdoj.gov.
For Maryland residents, the Attorney General can be contacted at 200
St. Paul Place, 16th Floor, Baltimore, MD 21202; telephone: (888)
743-0023; or www.oag.state.md.us.
We thank you for your patience as we complete our investigation of
this incident, and we regret any inconvenience. Our teams are working
around the clock on this, and services will be restored as soon as
possible. Sony takes information protection very seriously and will
continue to work to ensure that additional measures are taken to protect
personally identifiable information. Providing quality and secure
entertainment services to our customers is our utmost priority. Please
contact us at 1-800-345-7669 should you have any additional questions.
Sincerely,
Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Network Entertainment
