PlayStation Network (PSN) outage into 9th day, breach played down

The PlayStation Network outage goes into its 9th day. Millions of PS3 owners continue to be denied access to their online gaming and have the added worry of credit card fraud. Today we can report that Sony has updated their blog, and the security breech played down by the company.

Matthew Shaer of The Christian Science Monitor is reporting that Sony spokesman Patrick Seybold has again posted on the PlayStation Blog. He says that they know PS3 owners are upset by the problems, but are making improvements “to make our services safer and more secure than ever before”.

He goes on to say they are trying to get the service back up and running “as quickly as we can”. He mentions that Sony can’t rule out that credit card information was breached, but mentions that hackers could not have got hold of CVC numbers as Sony don’t collect them from users.

Many frustrated PS3 owners continue to voice their annoyance over the length of time the service has been down now. There has been some other sort of good news as some credit card companies which include American Express, have said they are monitoring cardholder’s accounts and so far haven’t seen any unauthorized transactions.
