Hackers Claim Triumph in Bringing Down Sony's PlayStation Store

By Gary Cutlack on at

Sony's online game shop is currently offline, returning an error message when viewed in a browser and not letting its players play. This is down to the mighty Lizard Squad, apparently, with the internet terror group claiming responsibility.

Sony's last update on the matter came 10 hours ago when it tweeted that "users are having issues connecting to PSN," but didn't offer any further explanation as to whether it was a hack, brutal DDoS attack or someone in a janitor uniform sneaking into its data centre and snipping a few cables. PlayStation Network is still offline at time of writing. [BBC]
