I was able to change my password a few days ago after I updated the console.

Here's the cnet article on the password exploit.



Yeah, the article says they took down the password reset page due to a URL exploit and while it has been fixed, the page is still down.

Guess I'm SOL for now.

What did you do to change your password? Logon four times with the old one and then it prompted on the PS3 to change it?

No. First time I tried to log on, it told me my password had expired, and to choose a new one. After entering the new one, it gave me an error. I hit back, and entered it again, and got an error. Tried that 4 times, and on the 4th time, it accepted the new password, and took me to the TOS screen. After I accepted the TOS, it took me BACK to the login screen again. Typed in my new password, told it to save it, and it logged me on.

When I tried to do anything, however, it said the server was down. So I am watching ESPN3 via my playon server with it now.

Gotcha. For me it just stated that I needed to change my password (nothing about it being expired) and that a link was sent to my e-mail address. Guess I'll hafta wait till the password reset page comes back up.

Personally, I'm waiting until all this mess blows over before I sign onto my PSN again.

Anonymous has been threatening another attack, and while 90% of the crap they talk I take with a grain of salt, there are a few among them who can back up those claims with action. So I think I'll just keep my happy bum off the PSN until this is all resolved. No matter how secure the system, there will always be vulnerabilities if it's connected to the internet.
The color differs from my own but.. Would you express them in your own hues, and paint.. for me?
