Currently, the Playstation Network, along with the Playstation Store, is down. Reportedly, this is due to a DDoS attack that occurred early Sunday morning. Interestingly enough, it is reported that Sony is not the only company affected, as Path of Exile, World of Warcraft, and League of Legend servers were also all down temporarily, though connections to those servers have since been restored.
Hacking group Lizard Squad has taken responsibility for the attacks, saying that this attack is just the first of many in an attempt to destroy Playstation. When questioned as to motives for the attacks, Lizard Squad simply replied: “PC Master Race”.
Keep in mind that since this was a DDoS attack, it just means that the hackers overran the servers; no personal information has been compromised. Unfortunately, Sony has not yet released any sort of statement on the outage, not even admitting that there are issues on the network.
