Anonymous claims to have hacked PSN again (Update)

0

[Update: Adding to the arguments that some Anonymous scamp is pulling a fast one, the uploaded list of PSN secrets is apparently a list of random details first posted on March 29. Still waiting for word from Sony.

Update #2: Shane Bettenhausen has stated emphatically that the hack threat is a lie. He's told everybody to go buy Papo & Yo rather than be worried.

Update #3: Official word from Sony: "We’ve confirmed that the recent claim that PlayStation Network was illegally hacked and that customer passwords and email addresses were accessed is completely false."]

Uh oh. It would seem that Anonymous is not quite done with Sony yet, announcing today that the PlayStation Network has yet again been infiltrated and its ten million accounts are at risk. The group boasts of a 50GB database of usernames and passwords.

Whether real or not, incidents like this usually indicate a good time to update your details just to be as careful as you can. Folks are claiming the announcement (or rather, the hack being announced) is fake. Best to be safe than sorry, of course. 

At the moment, the official PSN site says it's down for maintenance when attempting to log in. 

Like every other site on the planet, we've contacted Sony for more details. With a lot of the company at gamescom, who knows how long it'll take to get a response? We'll keep you in the loop regardless!
