Shuhei Yoshida: PSN is Attacked Every Day
Xbox Boss Phil Spencer recently said that Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo are working together against DDoS attacks in the aftermath of the Christmas 2014 fiasco. However, it looks like the attackers have become more than just a nuisance at least for Sony. Shuhei Yoshida has revealed that the PlayStation Network is attacked every day. Literally.
Speaking to Game Informer during GDC 2015, he said:
“We are always always working against these attacks. Actually, an attack happens every day. Literally every day. Some days are bigger and some days smaller. Some days they devise new means, new ways – it’s like cat and mouse.”
In the same interview, Yoshida said that Sony is working with a partner company to try and stay ahead of hackers in case they deploy new methods of attacking PSN. He also said that dealing with the attackers is a “constant battle.”
We sure do hope that there’s an appropriate way forward! Any suggestions?
