Sony PSN password reset page taken down again

PSN facing new round of security concerns

Sony’s PSN woes continue as the tech giant is once again forced to take down its mandatory password reset page, a security measure brought in following the recent hacker intrusion.

Making PSN sign-in unavailable via its websites Sony has been forced to take down the mandatory password reset page after it was spotted the two bits of information required to change your password, PSN account email and date of birth, were both items of information accessed and compromised in last month’s hacker attacks.

With security concerns plaguing the re-launch of Sony’s online gaming system, this latest blimp in the service’s re-launch has sparked unease with returning users fearful that hackers could easily imitate them and reset their passwords to access and utilise stolen accounts.

Speaking on the latest downtime Sony has said: "Unfortunately this also means that those who are still trying to change their password via Playstation.com or Qriocity.com will be unable to do so for the time being.

The company added: "This is due to essential maintenance and at present it is unclear how long this will take. In the meantime you will still be able to sign into PSN via your PlayStation 3 and PSP devices to connect to game services and view Trophy/Friends information."

Have the continued PSN issues put you off using Sony’s online gaming service? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
