When Is PSN Back Up?

A database security engineer expert has said that PSN will be back up on Wednesday.

Talking to NowGamer, expert Neil Martin pinpointed tomorrow as the day PSN will return to its usual online status.

“The main thing Sony will be doing now is taking the original server code and they will be rebuilding it using new login keys for their admin side,” he said.

Discussing these changes, Martin claims Sony “will probably take the chance to change the developers root key that was recently leaked, which tellls the PSN that a particular piece of software is licensed and allowed to use the PlayStation Network.”

“This could mean all previous software will require a patch when it comes back online,” Martin continues, “but inconvenience like that will be secondary to the loss of revenue via piracy and loss of security if they don’t change it.”

Martin then clarifies possible changes to the service, “the only change the consumer may see is to the way we log in to PSN. Automated logins may be disabled, which is what a lot of the Distributed Denial of Service attack programs use to strain the servers.”

Sony has yet to officially state when it expects the PSN servers to be back up and running, after revealing it was rebuilding the service following an attack from hackers.

It’s not much to go on but for those of us wondering when is PSN back online, fingers crossed Neil Martin knows what he’s talking about…

    PSN’s down again.
    I was gonna try ask PS Blog about it but I can’t sign into that either so I thought I’d tell the good people at Play.
    Really brings up the question, just how secure is PSN if it’s crashing again only a couple weeks after coming back online?
    If this continues like last time I say it will kill off Playstation properly, not to mention it’s users seeing as if it doesn’t come back today they won’t give us any information at all.
    Only speculating here, it’s probably nothing, but error code 80710092, is everyone or just some getting it? Has it been hacked again or just a glitch. Is it because Asia came back online? Is it just EU or is it everywhere? Let’s find out.
    Once again I ask, ‘When will the Playstation Network be back up?’

    Hey,

    Does anyone know any good daily deal sites where you can see a bunch of offers for the UK, most of the ones I see are made for the USA or some other far away country.

    The only two I know are HotUkDeals.com and Offerbot.co.uk and both don`t seem to have that many good offers on ?

    Anyone know any others ?

    Cheers
    George
