PS Blog: We temporarily took down the PSN and Qriocity password reset page. Contrary to some reports, there was no hack involved. In the process of resetting of passwords there was a URL exploit that we have subsequently fixed.
Great... people just jump to conclusions... I reset my password on my PS3 and been loving SOCOM, and LA Noire..
most people should have already reset their passwords, why wait days to do so?
Not everyone been able to do it through the PS3 apparently. Also the media needs to stop spreading lies. They take one rumor and twist it into facts.
thought so. once again the press is blowing it way out of proportion
What online component does LA Noir have?
There is no online...im just loving the game lol..and wanted to mention it.
Nobody jumped to conclusions. The exploit was real. They JUST ADMITTED IT. Changing your password didn't matter. The exploit let someone circumvent your password, whether it was changed or not. What you need to change is your associated email.
Next, Sony wants you to change your Date of Birth, since they just opened another security hole while fixing this one!
Better news than all those whining articles
You mean *actual* news as opposed to editorials, conjecture, and outright lies? Yeah, I agree.
URL exploit is still a form of phishing and can result in a stolen password. To most people that constitutes hacking.
People are just waiting for something, even a little problem so they can blow it out of proportion. Hack and negative PSN news is what gets approved the fastest on N4G. They feed off of that negative Sony news.
Im just happy that this turn out to be nothing more than a malicious rumour. Sony and its fans have been through crap over the last month, and the last thing we want is more bad news. Just get this all over and done with, and people will forget this even happened soon enough.
I see this as a positive sign of upped PSN security. Somebody found an exploit and wrote about it in some forum, not directly emailed Sony. Yet they handled this situation in almost no time. Good work.
