Sony faces further hacking problems

PlayStation 3 hacking

Just a day after the internet group Anonymous threatened Sony due to the legal battle with hackers Geohot and Graf_Chokolo, reports have surfaced of attacks against the console maker.

Yesterday the PlayStation Blog was down for a period of time and company websites were having loading troubles. There was also word of the PlayStation Network being unavailable, but Sony later revealed via Twitter that PSN would be "undergoing sporadic maintenance" that may limit access to the service.

Anonymous is now claiming responsibility for the website issues, but a radical offshoot of the internet group plan to take things even further. They are perpetrating personal attacks against Sony employees, going so far as to gather information on CEO Howard Stringer’s children in a nuisance campaign effort.

Sony has yet to officially respond to these reports, but considering the Howard Stringer situation things seem to be getting out of hand fairly quickly. Hopefully this hacking scandal will be resolved sooner rather than later.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
