Japanese electronics company Sony Corp. had announced Monday that Sony Network Entertainment International will fully have restored all PlayStation Network and Qriocity services in Japan by today.
You may recall in April when a hacker breach prompted Sony to shut down these services to bolster their overall security.
This breach was evidently perpetrated by the “hactivist” group, “LulzSec.” (they have since claimed that they are disbanding)
Since May 28th, they have been in the process of slowing phasing in newly implement security procedures.
Now that service has been restored in Japan, Sony has fully brought back PlayStation and Qriocity services in every area where they had been operating before the breach.
In addition, Sony will be offering a special “Welcome Back” package to all registered customers as a way of making amends.
Despite the new security measures. People and organizations utlizing these services should still take their own measures.
