PSN still out for the count
People are counting the days passing by as we are hitting weeks into the Playstation Network outage. Frantic gamers and users wait by their consoles and check the Playstation blog only to hear that the best they have is that they are working on it….
It is a worrying time for the Sony corporation as the law suits seem to increase and there is still no light to the end of this tunnel for the PSN as of yet. Sony Corp. Chief Executive Howard Stringer apologized for “inconvenience and concern” caused by the security breach (from Huffington Post) but there are still no confirmed or definite fugures as to how many accounts and details have been compromised as a result of the network hack.
There has been great speculation surrounding the culprits to the PSN hack and with various blogs and news articles claiming everything from cyber thieves to chance child geniuses it is still hard to put a pinpoint on the person or people behind the PSN security breach. The rumor mill has even suggested that the various millions of users details (credit cards, addresses, etc.) are now up for purchasing on the ‘hacker black market’. Whatever really is going on behind the scenes still remains somewhat of a mystery but with each passing day the worry and the risks surrounding the network crash seem to grow and develop even further.

It is believed that Sony are in the “final stages of internal testing of the new system” but as the Huffington Post states there is no definite timeline for when we can expect the network to resurface.
