Sony Calls PSN Hack Story 'Completely False'

August 16, 2012 -

Even though a story about a fresh security breach on PlayStation Network turned out to be a hoax, Sony decided to issue a short statement on the matter with C&VG.

The story, which turned out to be false, originated over at Kotaku, based on a tweet from a Twitter account associated with the hacking group Anonymous. The tweet implied that a fresh intrusion into Sony's networks had occurred. A file on Pastebin was offered as proof, but as people started looking into the data they found that it was from March. In other words, old news.

Still, a Sony representative offered the following comments via twitter for the sake of clarity:

"We've confirmed that the recent claim that PlayStation Network was illegally hacked and that customer passwords and email addresses were accessed is completely false."

Consider that a public service to you if you happened to have stumbled upon that security breach story from yesterday...

Since they didn't have any decent level of protection I'd say they are completely ture.


Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

And your evidence of this is?

 

Security has significantly improved since the major breach last year.
