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.
