Reports are coming in that Sony has reset a number of PSN account passwords after detecting “irregular activity” on the service. According to the email received by two of The Verge's employees, Sony says it "routinely monitors for any irregular activity, and if such activity is detected, we may sometimes reset passwords of affected accounts to protect consumers and their account information."

The email didn't specify exactly what caused Sony to reset the select PSN accounts, though two major hacks may be the cause of decision. Adobe recently suffered a security breach causing tens of millions of customer accounts to pour out to the wild, while Facebook, Twitter and other server to issued password resets of their own after hackers made off with 2 million passwords.

As always we encourage anyone worried about their account security to reset their password, and to always use one that is both secure and hard to guess. Creating a password that is also unique and never been used elsewhere can also help tighten security.
