Well the big guys are coming out to apologize for the playstation network down problem. On Sunday executives from Sony bowed in apology for the security breach in the company’s network. This breach compromised the information of about 77 million accounts. This being no small matter I suppose they thought it was about time for a statement.
“We deeply apologize for the inconvenience we have caused,” said Kazuo Hirai, chief of Sony Corp.’s PlayStation video game unit, who was among the three executives that bowed their heads low. This is the traditional style of apology for the Japanese. After the apology Hirai said that parts of the service would be back this week and that the company would beef up the security measures.
About 10 million credit cards could have been compromised in the data that was believed to have been stolen. Sony asks that all users change their passwords since the playstation network down problem. They said once again that they can not be sure that this information was stolen but they also can not rule it out. Do you think the network will really be up in 4 days as many people have heard speculation about?
