Sony resetting account passwords as it warns users of ‘irregular activity’


Sony has reset a number of PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network passwords in recent days, attributing the precaution to irregular activity detected by its security team. Two staff members at The Verge today received the below email, in which Sony says it routinely monitors for any irregular activity, and if such activity is detected, we may sometimes reset passwords of affected accounts to protect consumers and their account information. The message also encourages customers to use strong passwords that are unique to Sonys services. However, seeing Sony take them is sure to raise eyebrows, as the 2011 PlayStation Network hack — now regarded as among the worst on record — remains fresh in the minds of many gamers. We reached out to Sony for more information on these password resets, but the company offered few details.
