The latest attacks have been pretty heavy hitting – taking down Minecraft, EVE Online, League of Legends, and even the Escapist Magazine’s website.
The assault was led by LulzSec, a hacker group that daily threatens companies and servers publicly via a twitter account.
“Minecraft servers 100% down, website is up. You can watch their trailer video and everything! :D #TitanicTakeoverTuesday” said LulzSec, bringing humour to the massive DDoS attacks. “#TitanicTakeoverTuesday” is the hashtag they’ve created for today’s intrusions and attacks on the abovementioned servers.
No real reason has been given for these attacks, and that comes as no surprise. There appears to be no pattern or justification to the doings of LulzSec, except for their own amusement, of course.
And speaking of amusement, it looks like League of Legend subscribers aren’t getting any.
Check back to PSU daily (unfortunately) for more info on the latest breaches of security.

This is getting ridiculous dude, attacking major corporations like sony and other evil corporations ( nit saying song is evil cus they kick a**) is one thing.. but to hack Indy developers like minecraft is just pure evil and wrong. They should be specific guidelines to what you can and can't hack. Why don't u go after Disney or something. They are just as evil as you.
