Earlier this week, we reported that while service to the PlayStation Network was restored this past weekend, a flood of password resets requests caused more downtime.  Apparently, Sony’s woes aren’t over as a new wave of security issues have struck in the form of exploits relating to their password reset system.  Users could reset their passwords by merely providing their email address and date of birth, which was information that was stolen during the initial security breach in April.  In other words, the hackers were given an easy and convenient way to use the information they stole.  In reaction, Sony has brought down the PSN sign-in on a number of sites and of course password resets are now unavailable.  If Sony doesn’t get things right soon, we’re going to run out of adjectives to describe this hot mess they find themselves in.
