PlayStation Network knocked out by attack; AA flight diverted to Phoenix

|By:, SA News Editor

A twitter group called Lizard Squad has claimed credit for the denial-of-service attack on Sony's (NYSE:SNE) PlayStation Network.

Sony says that personal information on the network was not accessed in the attack, and it will restore service as soon as possible.

Lizard Squad also claimed that explosives were aboard a plane carrying Sony Online Entertainment President John Smedley to San Diego. The American Airlines flight was subsequently diverted and landed safely in Phoenix.
