PlayStation Network Down for Fifth Day as Sony ‘Rebuilds' From ‘Intrusion'

S ource

We still know virtually nothing about what happened, or why. Sony says the outage is its own fault, that it shut the PlayStation Network down preemptively after an “external intrusion.” The implication is thus that the PSN might have continued to run otherwise. Sony shut things down voluntarily to ensure things were smooth “going forward.”

It appears that my thoughts in my earlier posts regarding this issue were correct...

That's as dramatic a move as they come. It's Sony admitting the PlayStation Network had fatal security and performance holes. What else would prompt the world's fifth largest media monolith to--without warning last Wednesday, April 20--cut off over 70 million PSN customers, then keep them offline for going on a week?

So, as annoying as this might be for PSN players (especially those of us that pay for certain items on the PSN that are unavailable right now), hopefully we will be walking out of this with a faster, stronger and more secure PSN than before.

If Sony had just been up front on day 1 about the outage and that they in-fact took the network down themselves to enhance/repair it, they would not have received near the amount of criticism, etc regarding this.
