PLAYSTATION EU FORUMS HAVE BEEN HACKED !

8 replies 12 views Edited Nov 14, 2011

Just a heads up guys.

PLEASE DO NOT ENTER ANY PSN USERNAME OR LOGIN DETAILS FROM ANY LINKS ON THREADS ON THIS OR ANY OTHER OFFICIAL SONY PLAYSTATION WEBSITE.

SOMEONE HAS HACKED A MODERATOR ACCOUNT  OVER ON THE EU/UK FORUMS.

I am constantly amazed at how Sony continues to  work so hard to "lock down" their consoles from modifications and homebrew, however they are embarrassingly absent in regard to online security and the protection of their own network.

Hey guys, the site wasn't hacked.  A member of the team fell for a phishing site and as such someone took control of their account for a short while until it was found and then passwords were changed, and actions taken against the individual. 

It brings up a good lesson of always double check the URL before entering in your password/login information.

I'm not quite sure honestly, maybe someone got lost on their way to the UK and ended up in Ibiza?
