Sony: PlayStation Network is back online now, really


IDG News Service - (International) Sony reported that its PlayStation Network was fully restored December 28 following a December 25 distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack that knocked the network offline. The Lizard Squad hacker group allegedly claimed responsibility for the DDoS attack which also took down Microsoft's Xbox Live through December 26, and the group claimed that the Tor network was its next target for a zero-day attack.
