Sony hit by another Security Issue, Qriocity Login Down, Password Reset Page
 
 

Sony is not out of the security hole yet. The delayed re-launch of PSN was to make sure that everything is secure as much as possible. Now an exploit surfaced on the password reset page. As reported you have to reset your password to get back into PlayStation Network.

The exploit allows anyone with access to your user account email and date of birth to change your password. Apparently this what has happened to some account according to Eurogamer.net. The exploit was first published on Nyleveia.

Sony has already reacted and the page for resetting your password is down. I also just tried to log in on Qriocity, but the login page is under maintenance. You still can use your PS3 to log in to PSN though.

Update:
Sony fixed the URL exploit and the login and password reset pages are online again

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
