PSN maintenance delayed following DDoS attack

PlayStation 4 (console)  - 874438

In light of yesterday’s DDoS attack on the PlayStation Network, Sony has delayed today’s planned network maintenance.

“In light of today’s issue, the networks will not undergo the regularly scheduled maintenance, which was planned for Monday, August 25. We will provide an update shortly for when the maintenance will be rescheduled,” Sony said in an update yesterday.

Maintenance was originally scheduled to begin today, but yesterday was a pretty crazy day for Sony which was victim to major DDoS attack by either Lizard Squad or FamedGod -- I’m really not sure who is responsible for what anymore.

The good news is that Sony says both the PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network are back online, so you should be able to enjoy their services. Sony also assured users that no personal information was accessed as a result of the DDoS.
