PlayStation network down again due to security hole

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Yet another wrinkle developed in the seemingly unending PlayStation Network saga on Wednesday, as Sony took down part of its network again due to a newfound exploit.

The security hole, which was first discovered by gaming blog Nyleveia and successfully exploited by Eurogamer, allows an attacker to reset a user’s password and gain access to his or her account with an e-mail address and a birthday associated with the user’s profile.

Both of those data points were among those maliciously obtained by hackers during last month’s attack on Sony’s video game networks.
