PlayStation social accounts hacked, database breach claimed

Playstation twitter account hacked, PSN database breach claimed

Contrary to the various groups that use information for harm, these sort of "white hat" groups attempt to enhance security by exposing holes. The group claims they won't leak anything and just want PlayStation to contact Ourmine presumably so they can either fix their security or so they can receive a bit of coin by holding a ton of information hostage. But during the brief period that the hackers were on the loose, they sent out Tweets to existing members, informing them of the state of their accounts. The tweet had the community anxious since accounts and information will be compromised. CEOs like Google's Sundar Pichai have become victims of the group's hacking activities and so has actor Ashton Kutcher.

The group that is responsible for the latest security breach in the social media accounts of the company is called OurMine.

Did OurMine do the right thing? While it's clear from these attacks that social media accounts aren't really secure, OurMine seems to be doing a tidy job of marketing their security solutions. However, that hack did not cause any significant damage to HBO's computer network, which rolled over the stolen information and unaired episodes.

PlayStation social accounts hacked, PSN may have also been compromised

The act was made to advertise the security services that they offering. It was one of the largest data security breaches in history, and a subsequent network outage while Sony shored up its security lasted 23 days.

Sony's Facebook account also got taken over for a short while this weekend putting users off the service and sparing other people from cat pictures and happy couples. The new update is related to family controls, notifications and a few tweaks in the broadcast features, among others.

Versatile - We are experienced in many fields of hacking and can crack anything from a network to a social media account. In 2011, the PSN was taken down and every account has been compromised. Additionally, the Japanese firm has added a Custom list tab to the Friends screen, allowing users to create a customized friend list and segregate them into different groups.
