There are tons of other tweets where users are complaining about account hijacking and their funds being missing, however, Sony maintains that PlayStation Network has not been hacked. In a statement to BBC, Sony said that:

“We routinely monitor for irregular activity, and if such activity is detected, we may sometimes reset passwords of affected accounts to protect users and their account information. We strongly advise users to keep a close eye on their accounts for unusual activity and avoid entering your username/password into unofficial sites looking to phish credentials based on fake promotions.”

Sony has also apologized to its users for the inconvenience but did not mention the exact number of accounts facing login issues.

PlayStation Network users are not new to such issues. In fact, DDoS attacks on PSN servers often block users from accessing their accounts. Remember, Sony was once fined £250000 (311325.00 US Dollar) for PlayStation security breach in 2011.
