The PlayStation jailbreak Network April 2011 outage, which began on April 20, 2011 and affected 77 million registered accounts, is the longest amount of time the PSN has been offline since its inception in 2006.Sony acknowledged that the outage prevented users from having the “ability to savor the support offered by PlayStation Network and Qriocity including online gaming and online access to music, movies, sports and TV shows”, which makes it temporarily unavailable.
While remaining offline, the Ps3 jailbreak download was unable to play certain Capcom titles which were downloaded from the PlayStation Store. Streaming video providers Hulu, Vudu and Netflix are noted to be inaccessible displaying the same maintenance message. The constant maintenance message on Netflix can be bypassed, on the other hand, and the service can be used (two failed tries to sign into PSN will permit entry to the service).
Sony reported on April 26, 2011 that user data was obtained by the same hack that lead to the downtime. Including names, addresses, email addresses, birthdays, PlayStation Network passwords and logins. It is also possible that profile data, such as purchase histories, billing addresses and PlayStation Network password security answers might have been obtained. Sony proceeded to provide step-by-step guidelines on how US users could obtain a credit report, place a fraud alert, and freeze their credit report through Equifax, Experian and TransUnion in an effort to prevent identity theft.
On May 1, Sony issued an announcement and their sincerest apologies claiming that the PlayStation Network would shortly begin a “phased restoration”, beginning with gaming, music and video services. Sony also announced “a series of immediate steps to enhance security across the network and a new customer appreciation program to thank its customers for their patience and loyalty”.On May 5, Sony announced that they would be offering all PlayStation Network and Qriocity customers in the usa one free year of AllClear ID Plus, an identity theft protection program powered by Debix.
On May 14, 2011, various PlayStation Network services were being brought back online on a country-by-country basis, starting with United states.These services include: sign-in for PSN and Qriocity services (including password resetting), online game-play on PS3 and PSP, playback of rental video content, Music Unlimited service (PS3 and PC), entry to third party services (such as Netflix, Hulu, Vudu and MLB.tv), friends list, chat functionality and PlayStation Home.This accompanies a firmware update with the PS3, version 3.61.
In June 2011, Sony launched a “Welcome Back” program following its data breach allowing all PSN subscribers who joined prior to April 20 to download two free PlayStation 3 titles and two free PlayStation mobile games. Users also got 30 free times of PlayStation Plus, while users who already were subscribed got 60 free days.
