Yes it is true Sony Online Entertainment has suspended it’s services and will be giving an update on the status later today. Last week SOE stated that they were not effected by the PSN breach so this does not necessarily mean this suspension is due to a breach in security as bad as last weeks, but any breach is bad in my book. Here is the statement made by SOE as seen above:
Dear valued SOE Customers,
We have had to take the SOE service down temporarily. In the course of our investigation into the intrusion into our systems we have discovered an issue that warrants enough concern for us to take the service down effective immediately. We will provide an update later today (Monday).
Just a little warning I would keep track of your credit card in the mean time if you used it to purchase anything from SOE in the past.
