Panic struck users within the PlayStation Network, for when they tried to boot up PSN from their various gaming consoles, they received a message which tells them that their user information were incorrect. So far, this has only happened to EU and US PSN accounts, according to reports. This caused a mania between PSN users and many of them had to go through the vigorous task of resetting their password. What caused this much panic contributed to the fact that many users thought their account might have been compromised or hacked.
I myself had experienced this problem just a few hours ago, and had to reset the password only to find out that PSN was working flawlessly. Just 1 hour later, I received the following email from Sony Entertainment Network which was titled “Important notice regarding your Sony Entertainment Network Account”.
Sony have sent an explanation to this problem through many social network including twitter. This is the message the sent out today.
So far, it seems that a few lucky people did not have to reset their password. Sony also urges users to have a stronger password to avoid easy access to their account.
