Hack caused PlayStation outage

Sony has confirmed that a hacking attack was to blame for its PlayStation Network being taken offline.

The company said that it had taken the PSN down voluntarily while it investigated an “external intrusion”.

The system is still unavailable five days after the hack was discovered.

Users trying to connect have been met with error messages stating that the network is “undergoing maintenance” or is “suspended”.

According to Sony, it has more than 70m accounts registered worldwide.
