It’s alive! PlayStation Network resumes after colossal security failure

Old School RPGs - Available Now @ DriveThruRPG.com

Sony has begun restoring PlayStation Network service in the U.S. and Europe this weekend nearly a month after a sophisticated hacker attack that affected more than 100 million online accounts and put customers’ personal and financial data at risk.

Sony is, of course, very sorry over the whole affair. And they’ve announced 12 months of free ID theft protection service to their customers — after that, of course, it will cost you.

I don’t own a PlayStation 3 but I don’t think I would trust Sony now — and the free PSN was something I saw as a bonus over Xbox LIVE, which carries a subscription cost — so I don’t see why I should pay for Sony’s protection racket when they should have been doing more to protect their customers to begin with. But that’s just me.
