Tokyo: Sony’s Play-Station network is said to have been shut down due to cyber attack.
It is said that Cyber-attackers had made it totally overloaded.
The condition of the Play-Station is known to be as a distributed denial of service attack.

The group claiming responsibility for closing down the network also tweeted suggesting that there was a security threat to the flight.
