Hackers Take Down PSN!
As first spotted by Shacknews, a group of hackers on Twitter has claimed responsibility for the disruption of service, saying they targeted PlayStation Network, Blizzard's Battle.net, League of Legends, and Path of Exile with denial-of-service attacks. DDoS attacks, as they're called, are usually carried out by bombarding a service or website with enough communications requests to make it unavailable to legitimate users.
This Brings into question How Secure Sony Really is? If it can be brought down by a random group of hackers are our passwords secure? bank accounts? Addresses? This just goes to show that not everything is hack proof and that if you're a PSN User then make sure you are keeping a keen eye on your account.
