Hackers have reportedly hit the PlayStation Network again, sneaking in another attack just days after Sony brought its video game network back online following its weeks-long outage -- which itself resulted from an attack last month. This time, hackers can apparently change users' passwords on the network using only their victims' account email address and their date of birth. Sony asked users to reset passwords after the PSN network was first infiltrated. Personal information on up to 100 million customers had apparently been compromised.
At some point in time a while back Sony made a concious decission to go this route with the PSN.
Some of which was moving their consoles to a Linux based system. Now I am not pointing fingers at Linux directly. Because Sony has yet to say what really the problem is. But someone at Sony knows that a decission was made that did not protect consumers enough with their PSN. It seems that story continues.
