First It Was PSN, Now It's Sony Online Entertainment That Is Down

Just when you started to have faith in Sony resolving their PSN issues, it looks like another one just bit the dust.

SOE, which is Sony Online Entertainment, Sony's official website, has just gone down for maintenance.


It's official. Security breach has been confirmed.

It's an intrusion: “We have had to take the SOE service down temporarily. In the course of our investigation into the intrusion into our systems we have discovered an issue that warrants enough concern for us to take the service down effective immediately. We will provide an update later today (Monday).”

alien6262755d ago

didnt they say they will merge the servers with the Europe servers? or something like that?

HappyGaming2755d ago

They will probably patch up the same security updates they used for PSN on all their online services... to avoid the same hackers from using the same or similar methods to hack other Sony networks...

artynerd2755d ago

12K+ CC info stolen via SOE.

In the words of our great former president:

"fool me once, shame on... you... fool me twice.. uhhh..."

Hacked or not.

The problem now is now the PS3 was hacked, for OtherOS.

They were saying hacking is fine don't worry it doesn't effect anything or stopping you from gaming.

Now the Sony networks are being hacked by people who are wanting to make money from that data.

Now Sony has had to drop all the server as the PSN has been hacked into and now all 70million account can't do anything.

Now you have the PC side now effected and those people can't play or whatever now.

So much for hacking won't effect people and is completely harmless for any Sony customers.

And Anon are saying Opsony is over and they have nothing to do with it, sadly this doesn't mean Sony or other branches are finished with them nor is Anon really finished with Sony as they must have provided some data to these hackers otherwise none of this would have come up.

Just because your've shut up shop doesn't mean people won't break the door down.

"Hackers are fighting for YOUR right to do what YOU want with YOUR console."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but PSN and SOE aren't consoles are they?

Yes, that was asked with sarcasm.

This isn't a new hack.. it says due to the RECENT intrusions meaning it's down because of what's already happened.

They also stated recently that they will be moving DC universe onto bigger servers so games were more occupied.

They probably found that while moving servers there was some things that could do with updating just out of 'safety'.No big deal
From an xbox based website anyways

fedexas2755d ago

Words cannot express how disgusted I am with the media right now.

Peaceful_Jelly2755d ago

what media? The main story is just some jut in a forum saying that SOE is down for maintenance...

kyl2772755d ago

why? if sony's security was up to scratch then there would be no story to report.

DWOM2755d ago

yep! maybe it's down for maintenance or to improve security... but it doesn't mean it's hacked...

I know, its like him and the blind bots on his forums can't read and understand. It clearly says that while investigating their systems they found a security risk so in order to prevent more BS they are just taking the site offline to fix it.

How they don't see that is beyond me. That's that blind hate and fanboyism the got going on over there. All of them circle jerking each other at Sony's expense when they should stop worrying about PS3 and worry about the NON-GAME issue they have at the moment.

BubbleSniper2755d ago (Edited 2755d ago )

LOL! i been wanting to call some of the bots out for so long, but that far as i go...

last time i rant on the bots i got moderated and 3 bubbles taken from me from power hungry mod suffering from tiny weenie syndrome off the site.


jus try an watch out... you doin good with 5

bubble an might end up with rest of us one or two

bubble wonders....

kyl2772755d ago

look at the article update

haxxorz been haxxoring

so much for you accusing people of fanboyism...

Biggunz2755d ago

It's more like a bunch of idiots with websites going bananas.

HINDERIZATION2755d ago (Edited 2755d ago )

i like bananas. they're nummy.

Maddens Raiders2755d ago

Armyntt2754d ago

Due to the recent intrusion, they have taken down their official website.

What could they possibly be updating? If anything, something within the PSN is linked to SOE, which is of concern for Sony.

ShinMaster2755d ago

That's actually a smart deduction.
Not sure why the disagrees.

ShinMaster2755d ago

[checked track record and site]

Oh I see. That's why.

DWOM2755d ago (Edited 2755d ago )

man, stop making things up... stop dissing sony

ksense2755d ago

way to jump to conclusions.....

they are probably just updating or moving everything to a more secure server like they said they would....

Jazz41082755d ago

@I'm champion. Now you know how it feels to read the forums on n4g most of the time. You just don't take notice because you are on that side but its very one sided on here and it sucks because we all gamers and should be unified and not playing sides.

a forum post from some random dude is a news story? This site is like a nazi propganda film sometimes.

Christopher2755d ago

***What could they possibly be updating?***

DC Universe Online and Free Realms are linked to PSN IDs as well as SOE's own subscription service. Since they're all tied to a single server cluster, I can see them needing to take it all down to run updates for PSN updates to security.

DWOM2755d ago

don't forget the DC unverse on pc! :) they prob are fixing servers issues...

solar2755d ago

a couple users over at shacknews have been getting charges from iTunes. watch ur accounts people.

gamingdroid2755d ago (Edited 2755d ago )

They probably found some more backdoors where hackers been enjoying your information! Once hackers are in, cleaning the system is a b!tch as you are never sure they are gone.

Part of interest:

"In the course of our investigation into the intrusion into our systems we have discovered an issue that warrants enough concern for us to take the service down effective immediately. "

why do you care whats going on with sony? i clicked on your link and it has xbox designs everywhere lol!!

7SBuzzLightyear7S2755d ago

Given that I have a PS3 and a PSN account, I think I have every right to worry, regardless of what information is stored on my account.

radphil2755d ago (Edited 2755d ago )

They could have been moving & updating servers?

It makes sense for them to also go under maintenance of other areas of the data too.

Natsu892755d ago

the guys in your forums are nuts.

"This just shows that Sony is clueless. "

Kind of brainless tbh. I think radphil is right. Sony right now is updating their services worldwide so why wouldn't the update SOE? You ppl are behaving like kids right now.

TKCMuzzer2755d ago

From your site "...another Sony service has gone down the gutter".
You say your worried about your PSN account, yet when Sony take a site down to check it's security to protect people like yourselves you write such lines.The web is full of sheep and boy will they follow, maybe that's your intention.

Your article should have been "Looks like Sony are tightening security across it's whole network"
Please be more responsible.

They are referring to the same intrusion that took down the PSN. Because they think that same event have also left their servers vunurable. This is not a different attack.
