Following yesterday’s distributed denial of service attack (DD0S), Sony has announced that both the PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network are back online.
Outages to both networks were reported yesterday, with Sony later confirming that it had been the victim of a DDoS attack. “Like other major networks around the world, the PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network have been impacted by an attempt to overwhelm our network with artificially high traffic.”
“The PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network are back online and people can now enjoy the services on their PlayStation devices,” the company added today. “The networks were taken offline due to a distributed denial of service attack.”
It was confirmed that there is no evidence of intrusion into the network and that all personal information is safe. “We have seen no evidence of any intrusion to the network and no evidence of any unauthorized access to users’ personal information.
As a result of this issue, the planned maintenance on the PlayStation Network for today, August 25, will no longer be taking place.
“We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by this issue. Thanks for your patience and support.”
