On Monday, Sony’s PlayStation Network was hacked and taken offline after a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack. The hacking group Phantom Squad has claimed responsibility through a series of tweets; one which stated “#psn #offline #off for some users. We are back for some action!” According to Phantom Squad’s twitter account, however, “PlayStation is doing all right defeating [their] attacks.”
So far, Sony has yet to address the cyber-attack as they have not released a statement on Sony’s or the PlayStation Network’s corporate websites. The company did, however, look to twitter to inform it’s users that the PlayStation network had been restored.
