Google researchers breach Sony PS portal, which is ‘vulnerable to hacking’ – IT Chosun VRESP

It turns out that Sony’s PlayStation cloud server is still vulnerable to hacking. Although Sony has strengthened security by fixing hacking bugs through recent updates, hacking cases continue to be raised and concerns about Sony’s network do not subside.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher at Google, said his team hacked the PS portal this year. He also added that he ran Sony’s portable game console ‘PSP emulator’. Researcher Nguyen relayed the information to Sony immediately after the hacking.


Sony fixed the bug in version 2.06, the latest update to PS Portal. Previously, even before joining Google, Nguyen hacked Sony’s portable game console ‘PS Vita’ and disclosed PS4 software vulnerabilities.


Previously, Sony suffered a major hacking incident in 2011 in which the personal information of 77 million subscribers to the PlayStation Network (PSN) service was leaked. In 2014, a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack caused the server to go down.
