Sony just started restoring its online PSN and SOE services which were comprised by an unknown group last month. The attack left Sony’s PSN service disabled from 20th April and a total of 77 Million users information were compromised. Another attack on Sony’s SOE (Sony Online Entertainment) affected 22 million users. The services were resumed yesterday but now there’s another issue.

Japan has denied to Resume PSN service until Sony boosts security of its online services.

Kazushige Nobutani of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry said Japan was waiting for Sony to provide more information on the breaches.

“There were similar cases in the past that were caused by other firms, and we are asking Sony whether their measures are good enough when compared to countermeasures taken in the past,” he said.


UK, USA and Middle East PSN services are already back up, However, Sony hasn’t replied back to Japan. A breaking news leaked in a few weeks ago that PSN Japan was back online but was later confirmed fake.

A note to those who have the service up, Do change your passwords and account info before logging in. Sony also announced that it would compensate the affected users with Free PSN+ Subscription and Games.
