SOE President's Plane Diverted After Possible Bomb Threat

SOE President's Plane Diverted After Possible Bomb Threat

Sony Online Entertainment had a scare today when an American Airlines plane carrying president John Smedley was diverted from its original destination to Phoenix for security reasons. Lizard Squad, a group of hackers who have claimed responsibility for disrupting PSN and Battle.net services, appear to claim responsibility for this incident.

Smedley himself tweeted during the diversion:

"Awesome. Flight diverted to Phoenix for security reasons. Something about security and our cargo. Sitting on Tarmac."

The flight landed safely in Phoenix and its cargo is being inspected.
