This is not EVE related but it’s linked to something that affected us all.
The 19-year-old is suspected of hacking into systems and mounting denial of service attacks against “a number of international businesses and intelligence agencies,” police said. Naming suspects who have been arrested in Britain is illegal.
Sony’s PlayStation Network went down on April 20 after what Sony said was a massive data breach. It had more than 70 million subscribers at the time.
It began coming back on line in mid-May. The PlayStation Store did not reopen until June 2.
The company estimated the cost of that attack will total $171 million.
Hackers later broke into Sony Pictures website, compromising the accounts of over 1 million users, and the gaming company SEGA, stealing nearly 1.3 million users’ details via a British subsidiary of the Japanese company. SEGA makes games for PlayStation and other gaming systems.
