LONDON: Sony has announced that its PlayStation Network is back online after a three-day hack-attack, but millions of users are still experiencing problems.
On Monday morning, the service suffered connection problems for the fourth day in a row following the attack, allegedly by a hacker activist group known as Lizard Squad.
PlayStation Network, which has 110million accounts worldwide was attacked by the group, which also targeted Microsoft Corp’s Xbox Live, on Christmas Day.
We are currently experiencing widespread network issues that are being addressed,’ Sony said in a statement on PlayStation’s maintenance website.
In a blog post Saturday night saying service had been restored, Sony vice president Catherine Jensen added that ‘PlayStation Network and some other gaming services were attacked over the holidays with artificially high levels of traffic to disrupt connectivity and online gameplay.’
