) but also need time to gain the trust of all customers who are in their homeland.

This time it was made much simpler than the previous attack. This happened because Sony asked users to reset their passwords to re-use the gaming platform. To do so was necessary to prune the email address and date of birth of the user. What people did not realize Sony was that all that information was in the hands of hackers from the previous robbery.
For now, Sony disabled the page which makes the password change. Any person entering now will be with a sign stating that the site is down for maintenance. Following the incident, the company said that “unfortunately, this means that those who are still trying to change their password via www.Qriocity.com www.playstation.com or may not do.”
