While PSN coming back up was welcomed by millions of gamers, Sony's issues seem far from over. While this attack is no where near as dangerous as previous attacks, it still shows Sony has a lot to learn about online security and they have another thing to add to the list to get fixed.

This can not be good for Sony who is trying to get PSN store back online and reassure their customers its safe to shop with them again.


it's not over yet. Another successful hack against the company is being reported (http://www.f-secure.com/weblog/archives/00002160.html) by security firm F-Secure. A Web server used to host Sony's Thai site has been broken into, and is now being used to host a phishing site that targets customers of an Italian credit card company.
