    PlayStation Network, Blizzard, and LoL servers currently out commission thanks to DDoS attacks

    8/24/14 11:27am




    We've got some breaking news straight from the Internet this morning, as Sony's PlayStation Network has once again become the target of hackers, alongside Blizzard, Riot Games, and Grinding Gear Games. But remain calm, this attack isn't quite on scale with the great PSN outage of 2011.
    As reported by Shack News, a hacker collective known as Lizard Squad has launched DDoS attacks on servers for PSN, battle.net (Hearthstone, WoW, Diablo III, etc) League of Legends, and Path of Exile.
    Each of the respective companies that have been hit are currently hard at work to drain this flood of junk data from their servers and get their services back online.
    We'll be sure to have more on this situation as it develops.

    They said on Twitter to 'end Sony greed.' Let the f'ing consumer choose to do that. These a holes are just screwing everyone else.

    And then they do this:
    @AmericanAir We have been receiving reports that @j_smedley's plane #362 from DFW to SAN has explosives on-board, please look into this.

    which results in:

    They $#@!ed themselves here. They went too far and are going to have government agencies down their throats because that is terrorism. Attack Sony's network is one thing but terrorism is handled gloves off. I love also how they think that by doing this it's always hurting the company more than anything else. You're mostly screwing the non- man. Hackers and their $#@!ed up logic. Smh apparently their reasoning is the fact that they wanted to prove that since they are charging for online play their security should be better since people are paying for the service.

    How about this assholes, you just cost people money by your demonstrating that your money isn't being spent towards security. So in a sense your tactics are just as bad.

    Twice in 3 years. Bloody annoying especially all the money paid. Once bitten, twice shy for many.

    Yeah it seems so. But would be very surprised if it turned out that this new gui would be the 'real' man behind the attacks

    Hackers are such drama queens. He's demanding people report lizard squad to get their account banned in Twitter and he will end the attack.

    While I don't approve the 'hacking-the-server' method to show us 'your point', I must that they did make one. After the whole thing where loads of accounts were exposed and Sony gave us free games, you'd expect that they'd upgrade the security... If these guys can get in that easy, I don't really have the feeling they did secure that much better...

    Still sucks though that PSN's offline for the people who're really active upon it around this time.

    They didn't "get in", they're not even 'hackers'. They just sent PSN a $#@!load of traffic so it went down. Luckily they don't have access to our information

    Like someone posted on the lizard squad twitter, this isn't hacking, it's basically like clogging a toilet and nothing more. These F'ers are just hurting the people. They can have their opinion, but leave my PSN alone!
