Sony Restoring Game Services

Posted May 14, 2011 by Suzie Ford

Sony Restoring Game Services

Sony Online Entertainment has sent out notice that game services have been restored. All games will be restored over the course of the day in a staggered restoration, with virtually all properties back online by day's end.

Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) announced today that restoration of its game services will begin today. The phased restoration will include the return of nearly all of SOE's portfolio of online games, the reinstatement of SOE's game forums and websites, and added functionality to require players to reset their passwords.

As the result of a criminal cyber-attack on the company's network, SOE shut down its game services in order for the company to undertake an investigation and incorporate rigorous enhancements to the overall security of the network infrastructure. SOE worked with several outside respected security firms during the course of implementing significant security measures that strengthen safeguards against unauthorized activity and provide customers with greater protection of their personal information.
