    Don't know why your antivirus would be going nuts... Website just redirects me to a status message about the network being down. I wonder if a hacker group might be involved in possibly DDoSing PSN?

    I forgot
    "pwned", no. If anything, it's a bunch of script kiddie 10 year olds DDOSing PSN. Why you're antivirus says...anything about it is beyond me, though.
