    Default Xbox Live and PlayStation Network Hacked

    I'm a little surprised no one posted about this...

    The PlayStation Network was reportedly hacked and has gone down, according to reports on Sunday.

    Sony responded to the apparent cyberattack on its blog.

    “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,” it said. “Although this has impacted your ability to access our network and enjoy our services, no personal information has been accessed.”

    The company added: “We will continue to work towards fixing this issue and hope to have our services up and running as soon as possible. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused.”

    Sony Online Entertainment chief John Smedley told USA Today that the network was targeted via a DDOS attack.

    A group known as Lizard Squad took responsibility for the attack, the report said. The group has been tweeting about the incident since the network went down.

    “Network update: our engineers are aware of the issues and are working to resolve them. We’ll keep you posted – sorry for the inconvenience,” PlayStation last tweeted at 12 p.m. ET.

    It also appears that the PlayStation Plus free games service is working, as some Twitter users have indicated.

    According to reports, the flight that Smedley was on was reportedly diverted due to a bomb threat. His plane–an American Airlines jetliner–was diverted to Phoenix.

    The Lizard squad apparently took responsibility for the flight diversion.

    It's Sunday...but apparently it's finally coming back up.

    I heard they tried taking down XBL but were unsuccessful other than causing some mild issues for some users. I'm sure MS is no stranger to DDOS attacks.

    PS3 and Vita have been up for a few hours now. Still no PS4 though. Bummed about that, I wanted to get the last mp TLOU trophy today. But I was able to get some Diablo done. Got to act 2.

    Looks like PS4 PSN is back up, at least at my house. Going to be able to get a couple TLOU rounds in now.

    Badger mentioned it somewhere but it's not really smackdown material. This is no fault of Sony or success for MS. It's just shitty people being shitty.
    One thing they do now, I noticed, is they have these platform wars, like "Xbox is better than Playstation." That's nerdy to me. What the fuck is the matter with you?

    We mentioned it in the Diablo 3 thread.
    Some cool dude posted this there too, thought it was too good not to bring here.




    Full disclosure, I think it totally sucks. Why do people find fun in disrupting other people's fun?

    Wrong. Everything is Sony's fault.

    Describing a DDOS as a hack is like describing super-glueing the lock on someone's front door as a burglary. Very misleading & irresponsible reporting.

    So you are saying that hackers glued a door knob to the Sony servers? That is messed up.

    Yeah, it's not really a hack so much as causing a packet traffic jam, though if they are using zombie bot nets on hacked servers and networks, then it's a roundabout hack.

    Its also worth noting that according to various media reports, this group tried to do the same thing to XBL, but were unsuccessful.

    They were successful, XBL had issues last night. It's just no one cares about XBL any more when the PSN is the new hotness thanks to the PS4.
