PSN Hacked? UPDATE!

notagain

As of November 25th 2013 after chatting with my buddies on facebook we decided to go online to play some Battlefield 4. To my surprise I was introduced with an error for my automatic sign in process for PSN. Thinking it was my internet acting the fool I tried it again. Then again and soon realized that something is totally wrong here. So I clicked on the forgot password link to send me an email to reset it. Since the last hack attack I have already isolated my PSN info to a locally made email account just for such an incident. Just in case my personal email get mixed up once again. To my delight I changed my password and got back in with no issues.

Now I am not sure exactly what to think of this but I saw reports of individuals having the same problem as I did. The only difference is that I did not receive an email stating to change my credentials. Either way this is a huge red flag. I know a little about hack attacks and usually any form of passwords or accounts being compromised usually the first line of attack is to freeze the account and have the user manually change the password to regain access. So if this is the case Sony probably in some hot sauce again. I will keep an eye on my account but I have nothing to fear. Never used my debit card or any other type of info on PSN that can harm me. If this has happened to you let me know. Till then stay frosty!

UPDATED!!

It seams my suspicions were correct. I just received this email from SEN. Now isn’t that something…

Sony Entertainment Network
Dear valued customer,

The Sony Entertainment Network team regularly monitors for any suspicious activity on our network. When we discover suspicious activity, we sometimes reset passwords to protect consumers and their account information. Your account password was recently reset as part of this process and you will need to create a new password the next time you access your account using the “Forgot Your Password” option on the Sign in screen.

We encourage you to create a complex password that isn’t the same password as those associated with other online services. As always, we also encourage you to keep a close eye on your account for any unusual activity. Please click here if you need help in changing your password, or to contact us for additional assistance.

Also, remember that Sony will never ask you for your password or any personal or account information in an email. Please use caution if you receive any emails or phone calls from anyone asking for personal information or directing you to a website where you are asked to provide personal information.

Thank you,
The Sony Entertainment Network Team 

I guess something is going on over at the house of sony!!!
