Sony recently turned their PlayStation Network back on after it had been offline for weeks due to a massive security breach, and now it looks like hackers have attacked the PSN again.
According to Euro Gamer, Sony’s PlayStation Network password system suffers from an exploit that lets hackers change your password using your PSN email and also your date of birth, which is information that was compromised in the previous attack.
According to the report the PSN sign in is unavailable for a number of Sony’s sites, which include PlayStation.com, and they have released the following statement below.
“Unfortunately this also means that those who are still trying to change their password via Playstation.com or Qriocity.com will be unable to do so for the time being,” Sony said. “This is due to essential maintenance and at present it is unclear how long this will take.
“In the meantime you will still be able to sign into PSN via your PlayStation 3 and PSP devices to connect to game services and view Trophy/Friends information.”
