PlayStation Network offline after DDoS attack
The PlayStation Network is currently offline, seemingly due to a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack that began early in the morning.
Shacknews came across the disruption first, adding that other services like World of Warcraft and League of Legends we’re also affected by DDoS attacks. Those services appear to have recovered.
Sony has confirmed they’re aware of the issue and are working now to resolve it.
Network update: our engineers are aware of the issues and are working to resolve them. We'll keep you posted – sorry for the inconvenience

The company has also taken to the PlayStation Blog to confirm that “no personal information has been accessed.”
We’ll let you know when the PSN is back up and running.
