59 posts in this topic

This is the page I keep getting when I click on the link in my e-mail to reset my password:

Is anyone else getting that, or is it just me?

Managed to send myself email from the trouble signing in page - just waiting on the email to come.

 

my sophisticated p4ssw0rd isnt an easy hack - but now I have to go and think of something interesting now

"We monitor PSN account for any irregular activity. If such activity is detected we will sometimes reset passwords.
 
This was done purely as precautionary measure and there was no specific evidence that any accounts had be compromised.
 
Only a small number of users were affected by this and as I said this was precautionary so there is nothing specific to worry about.
 
I cant provide any further details as this would affect out ability to keep you guys safe.
 
If anyone has any concerns about there PSN account drop me a PM or give PlayStation Support a call.
 
You should also contact Support if you are unable to reset your password for any reason.

^ that's what was posted on the Sony forums by their support team. Happened to both me and my nephew, who lives in a different city. I'm not so sure that it was only a small number of people, but I'd rather them fail-safe the network by auto-resetting passwords in the event of another hack. It's a bit sh*t of Sony not to email the affected accounts and make them aware though. I just got home from work to this, and now I'm going to have to change my pants... <_<

I always suggest a password with symbols in it like #%!$^(!). I heard that symbols like that make it harder to crack a password.

I logged in today and didn't have any issues. Hopefully it stays that way.

Pretty much like everyone else just had to reset the password on Sonys website and I can sign it fine on the psn store website (haven't tried vita yet), thankfully I used my actual birth date on the account otherwise nope since most of the times I just scroll to January and a random day out of lazyness....ridiculous I know.

Yep that's what I did. Picked a completely random date of birth a long time ago and now I've been chasing after PlayStation the whole day. Tonnes of calls and emails. Now my account has been locked and I still can't use it. Lesson here people. Don't lie. Or if you do, copy it down.

Happened to me just sfter platinuming oddworld on my vita. I tried to sync my trophies and got the same issue. Changed my password and it was sorted in two minutes. I don't think we need to worry too much, it seems to be a technical issue rather than something malicious.

Same here.

I changed my password just to be on the safe side. Resetting it to what it was worked but I was then told of a possible hack so changed it.

Better to be safe than sorry

Sounds scary.  :blink:

 

I had to re-accept terms once before I could sign in. I guess they changed something, I wonder what.

 

I could login just fine this morning, about 6 hours ago. I hope nothing has changed.

i had this too , that means psn has been hacked ! change your E-mail address and password as fast as possible cuz i had friend lost his 45 platinum and level 20 last night  
protect your accounts by changing email is really good idea ! cuz the hacker already listed your email on his data base , and by changing your password to stronger password ([email protected]#$%^&* ) this symbols would make it stronger  , and your email to another email would do the hardest thing for the hacker

It's unacceptable that they didn't feel the need to notify users, and instead caused panic. Even though I'm in the U.S., I changed my password just in case.

Wow I'm really scared in case this happens to me now, a couple of years back I had password issues and found that the date of birth I'd entered was incorrect. I eventually figured out the correct one but it took ages and depressed the hell out of me. I can't believe Sony would just do this and not tell anybody about it especially after the whole big hacking thing...

same thing happened to me.

2nd time something like this happens in a week and again without warning.

Sony's really starting to piss me off.
