PlayStation network back online following cyber attack

Sony’s (NYSE:SNE) PlayStation networks have been restored after a denial of service attack took them down Sunday evening. Sony says the cyber attack sought to bring down the systems by "overwhelming our network with artificially high traffic."

The company also confirmed that there was no evidence of any unauthorized access to users’ personal information.

    This kind of activity reminds me a lot of the anarchists in the early 1900's. No real cause or purpose, just trying to create havoc out of spite.
