PlayStation Network back online

Sony Corp said Monday its PlayStation Network was back online after it suffered a cyberattack and was unavailable over the weekend.

The network was taken offline “due to a distributed denial of service attack … an attempt to overwhelm our network with artificially high traffic,” Sony said.

“We have seen no evidence of any intrusion to the network and no evidence of any unauthorized access to users’ personal information.”

A hacker group going by the name Lizard Squad claimed responsibility.

“Sony, yet another large company, but they aren’t spending the waves of cash they obtain on their customers’ PSN service. End the greed,” one of its Twitter posts said.
