The company claimed it has taken steps to improve network security due to the hacker breach, and promised to start a phased rollout by region of the PlayStation Network services in the nearest future.


It seemed like Sony PSN users had a timetable as to when expect the network to resume after its closure. If you haven’t noticed, the network went offline about 2 weeks ago when it had been discovered that hackers had breached the network’s security.

Sony claimed it has conducted an extensive audit of the system, which resulted in implementation of a number of new security measures to ensure better protection of personal data. After the network closure it has been reported that more than 70 million accounts were probably compromised, including credit card data. Although the company keeps insisting that the information is encrypted and inaccessible, it still warned its customers that their credit card number and expiration date (but not the security code) could be obtained.

Upon the completion of the system audit, Sony announced the implementation of different innovative security measures able to provide better protection of personal data. After implementing these measures, Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Network Entertainment International are going to begin a phased roll out by region of the services in the nearest future.

The company promised to resume the following services to the initial phase of the roll out:
- Online game-play across the PS3 and PSP systems, including those titles that require online verification, along with downloaded games
- Friends List
- Music Unlimited
- Download of un-expired Movie Rentals
- Account management and password reset
- PS Home
- Chat

The company also promised to introduce a “Welcome Back” appreciation program for existing PlayStation Network users, which will include free entertainment and service offerings, along with a month of free PlayStation Plus premium service. For all its customers concerned over network security, the company also detailed what Sony is going to do in order to protect their data. The list of measures includes automated software monitoring to prevent new attacks, improved information protection and encryption, and introduction of extra firewalls.

Meanwhile, the FBI, Congress, and five foreign countries are involved in the issue, and the network is still inaccessible.

friskunr avatarSony stated that only 1200 credit card numbers may have been taken and none of them are from the us the only cards were on out dated system on accounts that were not used since 2007 they have also said the files that may have been compromised were not encrypted this what Sony actually said "While the passwords that were stored were not “encrypted,” they were transformed using a cryptographic hash function. There is a difference between these two types of security measures which is why we said the passwords had not been encrypted. But I want to be very clear that the passwords were not stored in our database in cleartext form."

as for the network not being back up it was up until they realized that more data was taken from the out dated accounts so they were shut off again it was only back up for about 45 minutes but it was up sites and peaople telling you it got hacked again are full of crap like everyone has said before nothing is secure least of all the internet and one thing is for sure when the next system comes out it will get hacked to and everyone will be angry and say how could this happen and peaople will say it happened to the xbox and playstation these things happen i still use my ps3 for netflix and for playing off line people keep forgetting you dont have to play online hell i still have not even plugged my 360 in if its that bad i can always pokemon
