Sony’s PlayStation hit by hack attack

Sony's PlayStation hit by hack attack

A hacker group has claimed responsibility for attacking Sony’s online PlayStation store, which is down on Monday.

Visitors to the site are greeted with a message that says “Page Not Found! It’s not you. It’s the internet’s fault”.

A group called “Lizard Squad” has taken credit for the outage, posting “PSN Login #offline #LizardSquad” as their Twitter status.

The outage is the most recent in a series of attacks on tech giant Sony.

The Japanese firm’s Hollywood film studios’ corporate network was hacked into last month, followed by an online leak of unreleased movies, along with confidential information such as actors’ salaries.

Sony Entertainment Network has responded by tweeting that they are aware of the issues that users are having in connecting to the PlayStation network.

“Thanks for your patience as we investigate,” the company tweeted at about midnight GMT.

The disruption comes just days after the gaming console celebrated its 20th anniversary last week.
