PSN down for the seventh day

Like all the other PS 3 users I was unable to connect to their online service this week. I wasn’t very upset because I’m not huge fan of this product, but I’m still amazed how could a bunch of hackers destroy the image and eventually the business of such a huge company.

Today is the seventh day when the PSNetwork is down and will remain so until further analyzes. The access to the service seems to have been banned by the company itself from the moment they found out their service was hacked. At the moment there are only rumors circulating the internet, but it seems that personal information such as name, address, e-mail, birthday, and PSN login information were obtained by the hackers. It is not confirmed if the purchase history and also credit card information may have been compromised as well.

The only thing I’m sure is that Sony will have to rebuild the PSN infrastructure and to invest a lot in marketing assuring the customers that their system is secure again. Until then, expect the unexpected!
