    PSN offline because of DDOS

    PSN is down, apparently after being DDOSed.

    PSN is offline at the time of writing, apparently thanks to a DDOS attack.

    A group called @LizardSquad is claiming responsibility for the action.

    Shacknews is reporting that Battle.net, League of Legends and Grinding Gears’ Path of Exile have also been attacked, although Hearthstone appears to be fully playable at the moment.

    Sony confirms PSN under DDOS attack, under maintenance

    source


    Earlier we reported that a hacker group named Lizard Squad had DDOSed the PlayStation Network, well, looks like it was true after all. Sony’s John Smedley has tweeted that it was indeed a DDOS attack, and has said that it was a “large scale attack”.

    PSN seems to be up for some people but for most it says “undergoing scheduled maintenance”. They have not given any ETA of when the service will be up, but since they now are working to restore service, it probably should be up soon.
    Earlier Sony had announced that a scheduled maintenance will be held on August 25th, and they may or may not go through with that due to this issue today.
    If your PS4 is set to primary system you should have no problems in playing your games offline.

    Playstation Network being attacked by hackers(DDOS)

    To start off, your credit card information isn't at risk. The type of attack their doing is a mass flood of requests so that it makes the servers so slow that they are essentially unusable. Recently the same group claiming responsibility has targeted Blizzard servers. Hopefully Sony will get things figured out, or the cyberjerks will run out of money for the bot net & move on to a different company.

    In the mean time, the best way to continue playing your PS4 is disconnecting it from the internet. If your using a wireless router this means unplugging it, starting up your ps4 & removing all your internet connections- then you can plug your router back in to get your network back up. Those who are lucky enough in this situation to have a wired connection, simply unplug it from the back of your PS4.

    I will update this post as soon as the attacks have stopped or Sony has come up with a solution.

    That would be awesome. Any free title from KZ Shadow Fall, AC4, Knac & Injustice probably. I'd take AC4 & run. But then do the Lizard Boys win?!?

    DDoS is often used to ransom large corporations who's livelihood is made over the internet.

    It's quite sad that people do this.

    Honestly, those peeps should do something more productive with their lives.

    It's probably Microsoft behind this. ☺️ They slid the lizard boys a little cash under the table.

    What loosers these people (the hackers) must be. Their fathers should've used condoms.

    These attacks are just lame. People spend their day working or running errands only to come home and see that some kids with too much time on their hands have disabled a way for them to unwind, in this case, playing online.

    I hope there aren't gamers that actually support these people. If you're a Microsoft fanboy celebrating this attack then you better hope that they don't do the same thing to you.
