Sony’s PlayStation Network went offline earlier today with hacking group Lizard Squad taking credit for the DDOS attack. The group has a history of targeting gaming networks.
Initial reports speculated that the network’s issues may be tied to the GOP hacking that has crippled Sony of late but the hacking group happily took credit for the incident on Twitter.
PlayStation’s Knowledge Center lists that the network is online and working again but several users are still reporting issues with logging in.
Sony says it is now investigating the issue, reports AP, but says that no personal information has been stolen.
