Sony Assures That Recent Claims of PSN Being Hacked are Fake

Sony has issued a statement refuting the recent claims of the PlayStation Network being hacked.

Earlier this week, a hacker group that goes by the name of DerpTrolling shared a Pastebin link online that contained credentials of 2131 PSN members, 2000 2K Game Studios members and 1473 Windows Live members. The same group also claimed responsibility for the recent series of DDos attacks on Blizzard’s World of Warcraft servers.

According to Sony however, the claims are fake.

“We have investigated the claims that our network was breached and have found no evidence that there was any intrusion into our network,” a Sony representative told Joystiq.

“Unfortunately, Internet fraud including phishing and password matching are realities that consumers and online networks face on a regular basis. We take these reports very seriously and will continue to monitor our network closely.”

The company assures its members that the online services and their credentials are heavily secured.

Microsoft has also followed with a statement, promising to investigate the issue. 2K Games on the other hand has declined to pass any statements.
