I got this from PSU "As a result, “Sony then shut down the PSN and [is] currently in the process of restoring backups to new servers with new admin dev accounts.” The SCEE source said Japanese servers may be restored tomorrow while the U.S. and E.U. servers will likely be operational the following day. "
Took way too long to solve. I would have assumed that Sony would have had stringent security as well as valid emergency recovery plans :(
Seems I was wrong.
This is Sony we're talking about, they never have a back-up plan.
Can't wait for the network to go back up.
Also, wonder why the hackers don't go to hit a bank instead. Or a company dealing with credit card transactions. Would give them something better than hacking PSN.
Already did that
That is correct. I believe there was an operation where Mastercard, Visa, and etc. were hacked after an attempt to do something else...something. Refresh my memory will you?
