Well, ain’t this a great topper to days and days of outage of Sony’s PlayStation Network. What we first thought was just an annoying DOS attack turns out to be far more insidious.
I just received the following e-mail from Sony:
Valued PlayStation(R)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.
