It has been over 3 weeks since PSN was attacked, with over 77 million user information being comprimised. They planned on having the system back up this week. However, Sony is now apologizing, asking for more time. What makes things worse, is the fact that they are being vague.
Since the beginning of the issue, Sony has been beating around the bush with details on the situation, and what they are doing to fix the problem. They have even tried to divert things by putting blame on the infamous hacking group known as Anonymous. However, Anonymous denied any involvement in the attack, issuing a statement “Sony, I am Disappoint.”
Yesterday, May 10, Sony’s Sr. Director, Patrick Seybold, issued another statement apologizing for the inconvenience and asking for more time: “I know you all want to know exactly when the services will be restored. At this time, I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t give you an exact date, as it will likely be at least a few more days. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re terribly sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work through this process.”
Sony needs to start answering some questions, and take ownership in what went wrong. If they don’t, PSN users will lose faith in the company, and decide to abandon ship.
