Banks on PSN: No Mass Breach of Credit Card Information


A lot of PlayStation Network users became furious, or even confused, when Sony, not long ago, said every PSN account was under the danger of being compromised. Now, however, major American banks have stated that they have no awareness of a mass breach of credit information. What this means is, there hasn’t been any suspicious mass credit card actions in the past couple days. I would still suggest keeping an eye on your bank statements, and maybe changing some passwords if you use the same password for everything.

It’s going to take Sony weeks, months, possibly years, to overcome this horrific event. I want to express to you guys the fact that this could have happened to any cooperation. I also believe these so-called hackers aren’t in it for the money. I, personally, think they are in it for the popularity. They want to be known as the hackers who brought down one of the most secure consoles, or so they say, the PlayStation 3. We, as ps3 gamers, should still have faith in Sony. Just because hackers currently have them in the worst of positions, I think we, as a gaming community, can wrestle this hacking bear, and just beat the living crap out of it.

We should expect PSN to resume by Tuesday at the latest. Assuming the network is 100% secure, of course.

No bears were harmed in the making of this blog post.

Anonymous: “We didn’t do it”

UPDATE: They have a new up video, I personally still believe they actually did have something to do with PSN going down, but what do I know.

The anonymous hacking group has denied any accountability on the current state of the PlayStation Network.


Sony’s PlayStation Network remains down for the second day running after an abrupt outage. So far, Sony has yet to identify the cause of the issue, only saying that they are still investigating the Network outage and it could be another full day or two (from yesterday) before the service is up and running.

In a post over at their official site, Anonymous, the infamous hacking group that previously targeted Sony sites, said for once they weren’t involved. Take a look for yourselves:

“Sony’s Playstation Network, its online service for Playstation 3 and its Playstation Portable consoles, suffered from a major outage today; which is on going as of this writting. According to Son’ys blog, the interruption in service may last into the long weekend – for at least another “full day or two”. Sony released a statement through its EU blog, saying that the network outage may be a result of “targeted behaviour by an outside party”, brining in the possibility of cyberattacks. Adding to the confusion is the fact that the message has since been removed.”

“While it could be the case that other Anons have acted by themselves AnonOps was not related to this incident and takes no responsiblity for it. A more likely explination is that Sony is taking advantage of Anonymous’ previous ill-will towards the company to distract users from the fact the outage is accutally an internal problem with the companies servers.”

What do you guys think about all of this? Or maybe you want to share what you’ve been doing during the PSN downtime?
