∞ Sony delays PSN restart, citing more security problems

Sony’s PlayStation Network still isn’t online, missing Sony’s own deadline to get the service running again. The company admits it underestimated the extent of its security malfunction after discovering almost 25 million more users with exposed information.

“Sony discovered that SOE servers – which run its popular online role playing games – were broken into at the same time as its PlayStation Network and Qriocity service, but only discovered that after [SCEA chairman Kazuo] Hirai spoke.”

Sony’s alienating paying customers, and its stock price hasn’t rebounded since the news broke that the company’s servers had been broken into.

    As an aside, remember when people guessing at weak Apple store passwords meant iTunes was “hacked”? This is a hack, kids. When iTunes is offline for three weeks for retooling, you can claim iTunes was “hacked”.

    This will cripple Sony’s online gaming for years to come. The X-BOX Live team has to be laughing their @ss off and double checking their own security. I know I would.
