Hacker Group Lizard Squad Takes Down Sony's PlayStation Network

You will learn SONY

Fresh on the heels of what appears to be a major attack on Sony Pictures by the North Korean government, the Japanese tech company was hit again Sunday night.

This time the company’s PlayStation Network was taken down. Sunday night, PSN users were greeted with an error message.

“We are currently investigating the root cause for the issue,” Sony has stated.

In the Sony Pictures hack, over 100 terabytes of data was stolen. The PSN hack appears to be far less severe.

It does, however, come at the end of Sony’s first ever PlayStation Experience, and during the company’s 20th anniversary celebration for the PlayStation brand.

Hacker group Lizard Squad claimed responsibility for the network’s outage, tweeting: “PSN Login #offline #LizardSquad.”
