PSN: inizia il ripristino

PlayStation Network



Servizio disponibile dal 23 Marzo 2007

A cura di Pietro “Holden” Petrocchi del 15/05/2011
Sony ha pubblicato oggi sul blog ufficiale italiano una comunicazione riguardo il ripristino di alcuni servizi online legati al PlayStation Network. Inoltre è disponibile il nuovo aggiornamento del firmware (v3.61) che obbligherà gli utenti, per una maggiore sicurezza, ad effettuare un nuovo cambio di password.

A seguire la comunicazione ufficiale:

Grazie per la pazienza e l’incoraggiamento che ci hai dimostrato nelle ultime settimane. Come anticipato nel post di oggi, puoi ora aggiornare il firmware della PS3 e cambiare la password. Kazuo Hirai ha appena annunciato che è iniziata la prima fase del processo di ripristino per regione di alcuni servizi, primo fra tutti la funzionalità multigiocatore online.
Tieni presente che ci vorrà un po’ di tempo prima che questi servizi vengano riattivati e resi nuovamente disponibili in tutti i paesi. Il processo è iniziato e in alcuni Paesi alcuni servizi sono già stati riattivati, per cui ti preghiamo di avere un po’ di pazienza.
Intanto che aspetti, aggiorna il firmware della PS3 e cambia la password, due requisiti fondamentali per poter andare online.

Abbiamo lavorato su un nuovo aggiornamento di sistema della PS3 che chiederà a tutti gli utenti PSN di cambiare la loro password non appena il PlayStation Network sarà ristabilito. L’aggiornamento (v3.61) è obbligatorio e già disponibile.
Se usi una PS3, la tua password potrà essere cambiata solo sulla tua PS3 personale (o sulla PS3 sulla quale è stato attivato il tuo account PSN, come ulteriore livello di sicurezza. Se non hai mai scaricato alcun contenuto usando il tuo account sulla console, un’email sarà inviata all’indirizzo usato come ID, associato all’account PSN usato per loggare la prima volta nel PSN. Quest’email conterrà un link che ti permetterà di cambiare la tua password: clickando sul link dovrai poi seguire le istruzioni a schermo. Una volta cambiata la tua password potrai accedere con il tuo account grazie alla nuova password.
Ci raccomandiamo a tutti i possessori di account PSN di aggiornare il sistema operativo. Quest’aggiornamento è un passaggio fondamentale per rendere il PlayStation Network molto più sicuro. Grazie per il vostro continuo supporto e per la pazienza.

Di seguito il comunicato ufficiale diramato da Sony:

Increased Security Measures Implemented Before Service Restoration;
Consumer Data Protection a Full-Time, Company-Wide Commitment
Tokyo, May 15, 2011 – Sony Corporation and Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) announced that Sony Network Entertainment International (SNEI, the company) will today begin a phased restoration by region of PlayStation®Network and Qriocity Services. The phased restoration will be on a country by country basis beginning in the Americas, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Middle East.
The first phase of restored services for these countries and regions will include:

Sign-in for PlayStation®Network and Qriocity services, including the resetting of passwords

Increased Security Measures
As the result of a criminal cyber attack on the company’s data-center located in San Diego, California, U.S.A., SNEI shut down the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services on April 20, in order for the company to undergo an investigation and make enhancements to the overall security of the network infrastructure. Working closely with several respected outside security firms, the company has implemented new and additional security measures that strengthen safeguards against unauthorized activity, and provide consumers with greater protection of their personal information.
The company has made considerable enhancements to the data security, including updating and adding advanced security technologies, additional software monitoring and penetration and vulnerability testing, and increased levels of encryption and additional firewalls. The company also added a variety of other measures to the network infrastructure including an early-warning system for unusual activity patterns that could signal an attempt to compromise the network.
“I’d like to send my sincere regret for the inconvenience this incident has caused you, and want to thank you all for the kind patience you’ve shown as we worked through the restoration process,” said Kazuo Hirai, Executive Deputy President, Sony Corporation. “I can't thank you enough for your patience and support during this time. We know even the most loyal customers have been frustrated by this process and are anxious to use their Sony products and services again. We are taking aggressive action at all levels to address the concerns that were raised by this incident, and are making consumer data protection a full-time, company wide commitment.”
“During the past 18 months, we’ve seen a dramatic rise in the volume of cyber attacks, their sophistication and their impact on businesses. Thwarting cyber-crime requires an evolutionary approach to security that is well integrated, reduces risk exposure and improves efficiencies,” said Francis deSouza, Senior Vice President, Enterprise Security Group, Symantec. “Today’s cyber crime attacks are proving to be more covert, more targeted and better organized than those we’ve seen in years past. In working with Sony on the move of their data-center, it’s clear they’re implementing measures to reduce security risks moving forward."
As an additional measure, Fumiaki Sakai, president of Sony Global Solutions Inc. (SGS), has been appointed acting Chief Information Security Officer of SNEI. In addition to his current role at SGS, Mr. Sakai, in his role at SNEI, will work to further reinforce overall information security across the company’s network infrastructure. Mr. Sakai will lead the recruiting effort in finding a new and permanent CISO for SNEI. As CISO, Mr. Sakai will report to Tim Schaaff, president, SNEI, as well as to Mr. Shinji Hasejima, CIO, Sony Corporation.
“While we understand the importance of getting our services back online, we did not rush to do so at the expense of extensively and aggressively testing our enhanced security measures. Our consumers’ safety remains our number one priority,” Hirai continued. “We want to assure our customers that their personal information is being protected with some of the best security technologies available today, so that everyone can feel comfortable enjoying all that PlayStation Network and Qriocity services have to offer.”
The restoration of the services across the Americas, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Middle East are beginning, and consumers will be able to enjoy some of the online functionality provided by both the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services. Phased restoration in Japan and other Asian countries and regions will be announced in due course. The company expects to have the services fully restored by the end of May 2011.
The company will be offering customers a “Welcome Back” package of services and premium content to all registered PlayStation Network and Qriocity account services. The details of this program will be announced in each region shortly.
