SOE Servers Offline In Response to Intrusion

Boy, Sony just can’t catch a break. This morning, Sony Online Entertainment customers awoke to find that all of the company’s servers had been taken offline.

In the course of our investigation into the intrusion into our systems we have discovered an issue that warrants enough concern for us to take the service down effective immediately. We will provide an update later today (Monday).

As if the PSN breach isn’t bad enough, now this has to happen. As soon as we hear more today, we’ll let you know.

Turns out their network security was Norton antivirus from 1999.

Oh thank god SWG can finally get a break after all these years. Hopefully that at least stays down for good.
