Quick action shuts off attack window for hackers.
According to a report update from Cnet, Sony has successfully managed to fend off a new hack attack on the Playstation Network services last weekend.
In fact, Cnet claims that it could be their original report on the matter that Sony saw fit to secure their servers: “our publication of the group’s plan may have caused Sony to secure the remaining servers this group claims it had access to, shutting off any avenues for another attack.” The tech site provided IRC logs as proof, which has one hacker lamenting over a lost window of attack due to Cnet’s article.
“Apparently Sony saw that article because the last server that I could access is offline now…its probbaly (sic) being patched like the other servers. There goes our window.”
Sony continues to face downtime with Playstation Network. The company had promised partial service restoration last week, however they yesterday confirmed that the service will be down for the rest of the month.
