People are understandably upset over Sony's PSN outage and the fact that members' personal information was compromised. The company has posted a Q&A responding to some of the major concerns, including a target date for services to resume.

In a post on the PlayStation Blog dated April 27, Sony explains the reasonable steps users should take to protect themselves, including monitoring credit reports and changing passwords. Sony also provides an estimate (though not a firm promise) that the service will be back up within a week.

"Our employees have been working day and night to restore operations as quickly as possible, and we expect to have some services up and running within a week from yesterday. However, we want to be very clear that we will only restore operations when we are confident that the network is secure."
