Patrick Seybold, Senior Director of Corporate Communications & Social Media, has commented on the PlayStation Blog regarding today’s email / password exploit that we reported on earlier.
“We temporarily took down the PSN and Qriocity password reset page,” he said. “Contrary to some reports, there was no hack involved. In the process of resetting of passwords there was a URL exploit that we have subsequently fixed.”
Fixed, thankfully, mostly due to diligent white hat individuals who told SCEE straight away this morning.
“Consumers who haven’t reset their passwords for PSN are still encouraged to do so directly on their PS3. Otherwise, they can continue to do so via the website as soon as we bring that site back up,” said Seybold.
The ability to change your details on the web is still unavailable at the time of publication.
