Sony’s Playstation network which was hacked recently is back online but only in a select few countries. Restoration will soon be done to other countries. Sony had said that the planted file in the hack attack was named ‘Anonymous’ possibly done by the hacker group at Anonymous.
Although ‘Anonymous’ consisting of highly professional experienced hackers denied that the hack was from their end and claims to not have been involved in any kind of such act but according to their official blog at Anonops.blogspot.com they say that the group as a whole was not a part of such fraud but the individual members may have been.

That being said many of Sony’s customers want to already cancel their service and demand a refund. Sony inspite of getting sued due to this gigantic data breach and lossage of several customers credit card information, are still keeping quite.
Ashamed of their unsecure network environment, Sony decided to instead put a smile on their customers faces by giving them a free 30-day Playstation Plus membership, 30 days of free Qriocity service and unlimited music to its customers and also a
free software of some sort as announced by Sony’s VP, Kaz Harzai from the official HQ at Japan on 1st May. Well that, we dont want Sony!
According to the latest news at engadget, Sony has begun its restoration services and currently only North America has been fully restored. Other nations such as Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, South America, UK and Ireland have partially been restored. I think Asian countries will be the last one to receive its treasured services. Meanwhile our friends at Japan are unwilling to co-operate with Sony and will resume its PSN services only when their demands are met. Their demands being, unless and until Sony takes all its preventive measures and ensures us that further such attacks wont happen again we will not turn PSN back on. They also said that the “company promised” counter-hacking measures have not yet been fulfilled. Other issues being unclear, we will try to bring you the latest updates, as soon as they are released by engadget people at Japan. Reports here.
