Sony says there is "no specific evidence" that any user accounts have been compromised

Sony has reset the passwords of "a small number" of European PlayStation Network accounts as a "precautionary measure".

In a post on the European PlayStation forums, an online support coordinator said there is "no specific evidence" that any user accounts have been compromised.

"If you have been presented with an incorrect password message today simply select Forgotten Password and reset it," they advised. A follow-up post reads:

We monitor PSN account for any irregular activity. If such activity is detected we will sometimes reset passwords.

This was done purely as precautionary measure and there was no specific evidence that any accounts had be compromised.

Only a small number of users were affected by this and as I said this was precautionary so there is nothing specific to worry about.

I cant provide any further details as this would affect out ability to keep you guys safe.

If anyone has any concerns about there PSN account drop me a PM or give PlayStation Support a call.

You should also contact Support if you are unable to reset your password for any reason.
