NowGamer: Graham Cluley, Senior Technology Consultant at software security firm Sophos has dicussed the options open to Sony regarding the denial of service attacks by hacker collective Anonymous...
Nobody had problems logging in to PSN. I was playing KZ3 all day. These hackers need a hug.
I guess SONY is retarded investigating solutions to problems that don't exist then? Or just maybe the world does not consist of just you and your friend list and other people may just have had issues. No, that would be too logical right?
Why are you always so angry at Sony? You need to chill out lol.
Is just an MTA. The best way is to ignore him.
Yes the problem was in US servers but only lasted 30mins.
Wow you're always enraged at SONY. It's rly weird...
@reddevil and GodofSackboy Some people don't like some corporations. Stop complaining about it. It's like Sony has actually done something for you. Some people hate Apple and Nokia, two companies that appreciate, but I don't go opinion policing those people for it.
MrBeatDown: Idiot. He didn't say Sony wasn't having problems. He ONLY SAID HE WASN'T EXPERIENCING ANY. There's a big difference. Reading comprehension FTW What Joni-Ice really said: NOBODY had problems logging in to PSN . . . Indeed, reading comprehension for the win, sadly that did not occur here today. This after calling someone else an idiot, the irony
Sony never did something for them, its not like they did something to them either
@TK calm down. What do you care? You're complaining about someone "complaining." And besides, you seem to defend people who have hatred against sony.
@mrbeatdown Or maybe you'll stop being an arrogant prick and take your own advice and READ and COMPREHEND before you call people out for not comprehending. I mean I can't even say its the kettle calling the pot black because lo and behold CG actually comprehended before posting.
@FailOverHero I admitted my mistake. Get over it. Or did you fail to comprehend what I wrote?
Wait...how did Mr.Beatdown get a personal attack for saying "Reading Comprehension FTW" yet FailOverHero just called someone "prick"? I'm sorry but this is clearly abuse of moderation.
Commander_tk So why do you go about policing those who like Sony then. Hypocrite?
You got 63 disagrees for being logical? Oh fuck me, PS3 fanboys you guys are just fucking insane, seriously. Learn to read you sad cases.
Its funny people because he calls himself a Christian Gamer and he doesn't even act it.
@GrumpyVeteran - He's earned those automatic disagrees. He's consistently been a troll and nothing more. If he makes a random good point, he shouldn't be all that surprised when no one notices. OT - It will be ironic when Sony is forced to charge for PSN to finance new security measures. These Anonymous tools (it's funny how brave the anonymous internet troll usually is) are doing nothing so far except proving Sony's case for them and hurting the users they claim to be fighting for. I hope it will be possible to find and prosecute them, but I'm pessimistic.
@Commander_TK the fact that a person could actually hate a corporation is pretty pathetic to me ..because we all know these big corps are killing innocent people with hell fire missiles and laughed at the earthquake and tsunami victims /s anywho Yea a small few people said that they couldnt log in thanks anon your hurting people who have nothing to do with anything lol its gonna be funny when sony make these anon un-anon then lets see how they act when people see their pimpled faces edit: let me set one thing straight I dont care about what they are doing to sony because sony can handle they self its the fact that they are backing geohot and bothering people who had nothing to do with anything
@CristianGamer gee how ironic your name is, cristian my a**, how have you not been banned yet? im tired of seeing you in every comment section you, loner, paintsville, socomnick this time it wasn't exactly trolling, but that's not the case 99% of the time delbert grady and evrfighter are bad too, but how the hell have you guys not been banned yet??? you have nothing to add to any conversation, all you do is troll, there is no point for any of you to be apart of this site, you guys make this site way worse than it already is @solidjun5 exactly, that's why i hate this site, a lot of the time the mods side with the trolls, believe me OT: i can go onto the ps blog, but can't login anonymous is nothin but b*****s that want attention
It's all pointless. A DDoS attack won't stop a court case from proceding, and doing pranks on the judge and sony lawyers is just going to prove that geohot needs to be screwed over.
maybe it didn't last long. shouldn't take longer than an hour to reboot a server. just rented Tron 3D on psn.
Some people have had issues with signing out etc, others haven't.
I believe he has more of a problem against the Sony worshippers, than the company itself.
Since finding out about these "attacks" from Anon yesterday I logged on PSN on my PS3 and I was able to get on and stay on. My brother in law has pulled his usual all nighter with BlOps and he hasn't had any issues. The attacks from Anon must be regional because Playstation.ca has been running fine since yesterday. The US playstation is however still acting up.
I couldn't sign in for a good 30 mins yesterday but i didnt stress at all. Hoped on my laptop, edited a few vids, came back and checked to see if i could get in, bingo, went back to work on the comp making music tracks...whats all the whining about?
I had some trouble signing in last night but it was late like 2:15 am est... But I figured they just took it down for todays update since it was early morning.
the people complaining are the Anon people here trying to act like it had an impact. Dont believe it, they shut down a website using Freeware Auto-refresh software for 20 minutes. It had zero effect and Sony is probably laughing at their efforts
After Anonymous "helped" the Egyptian protest and go against the Westboro Baptist Church, I was a fan... but lately, this fiasco with Sony is a bit too immature. I never knew that this "suing" issue is big enought for Anonymous to tackle. Or is it really Anonymous? since no one knows really who Anonymous is or are....
Yeah I get the feeling that this is a smaller sub-group. I think it would have been more profound if the whole of this "anonymous collective" were to "attack" Sony.
i cant wait to get sue by sony , cuz all the anno will come for the rescue.
Yeah, I'm sure geo is feeling "saved" because sonys website went down for 20 mins! LOL!
i been on psn all day yesterday and was never booted a website is what ever
There are more and more people... including myself that cannot connect to the PSnetwork. If this continues Sony is going to have a huge problem. My connection has been 50/50 at best since a few days ago.
I cannot connect at the moment :( I'm in the UK.
I'm back on now. Downloaded & installed SOCOM beta, but it's now taking FOREVER to download "update" files, 1.5gb worth! :-\
never had a problem connecting. [CAN] was logged in this entire time playing DAO.
having problems connecting to PSN...fuckers i swear they aint gonna hide for long. sony should hire a bunch of mercenaries to take these sons of bitches down...sign me up!
They should hack the hackers, get their names and addresses and publish the details on the 'net. Name and shame.
