Not so fast: Sony’s Playstation Network hacked again – TNW Industry
Less than 2 days after Sony started bringing its PlayStation Network back online reports are coming in that the besieged gaming giant’s platform has been hacked yet again. MCV is reporting that the exploit allows for hackers to change users passwords using only a PSN account email and date of birth, two pieces of user information that were obtained in the original hack. Update: Sony has responded to the reports of a new hack.
MCV says that the hack, which is really an exploit of Sony’s password reset system, was first reported by Nyleveia.com and then corroborated by Eurogamer. Now the PSN login option is unavailable on a number of Sony’s sites. Sony’s login site that is used to reset passwords using the email and date of birth is now down.
According to Nyleveia the exploit was demonstrated to it personally by someone who knew the method.
