    Uh, its the first step to hacking, this is what they did last time.

    Still DDOS should not be happening,.

    Flood mitigation is available. Hell even I employ it on our tin ass Fortigate firewall.

    Network flood attacks are among the most common types of attacks you’ll see on the Internet and the intranet, although you might know them by another name. Denial of Service (DoS) results when an infected computer, a botnet or even an individual attacker floods the network or a service with such a large amount of traffic that it disrupts communications to a computer or network.
    Effects of a flood attack

    Flood attacks can be carried out using a number of varying transports. For example, an attacker can disrupt a network by attempting to flood a specific IP address or by using a specific host name as a target to open multiple TCP connections, inundating it with an excessive number of SYN packets. This kind of “SYN flood” might lead to the following symptoms:

    High CPU load on the victim computer. The targeted computer will have to allocate processor resources to handle each half-open connection. Depending on the speed and number of packets, the processor can be overwhelmed with requests and will not be able to service other requests from critical processes running on the computer.
    High memory consumption on the victim computer. Each half-open connection requires a small allocation of memory, which is obtained from the non-paged pool collection. This is smaller than the total amount of memory in the machine, and thus can be exhausted more quickly than the total RAM and can cause a DoS on the victim computer.
    Heavy disk load and resource consumption on the victim computer. The half-open connections can be logged and if they come in fast enough, this can overwhelm the ability to log these connections or may consume disk space to the extent that the machine will no longer be able to provide the disk space required for normal operations.
    High network bandwidth consumption. Flood attacks not only affect available bandwidth to the targeted computer(s), but potentially can impact any host computer that lies in the path between the attacker and the victim machine.

    Shutting down the serves does nothing. Those requests will still be pounding it soon as you start up again.

    If you have a decent firewall on your servers. You have options.
    Right down to manually blocking response by IP. Which is probably what Sony's are doing at the moment, or at the very least sorting out which is a correct level of rate limiting.

    I imagine there a thousands of IP on this, some of you may even be responsible for contributing without knowing.

    Regardless of Sony's level of protection these hackers "motives" are highly questionable

    It's not Sony's fault.

    They can mitigate or alleviate, they cannot end it unfortunately.

    Wow, so is there any way they could prevent this for future threats?

    Nope, they can just lessen the impact of it.
    Good flood mitigation can mean it just takes a bit longer to do things than normal.

    Update 4: Lizard Squad has now set their sights on Xbox Live. Xbox Support confirms that service has been affected.


    Update 3: A Sony Online Entertainment representative has issued a statement to Shacknews in regards to SOE President John Smedley having his flight diverted over a fake bomb threat. The statement reads "I can confirm that at this time the FBI is handling this directly." The rep added that no specifics could be offered, as this has now become a matter of national security.


    Update 2: An update has been posted on PlayStation.Blog confirming that no personal information has been stolen in these attacks. The DDoS attacks are persisting and the team is looking to resolve the matter as soon as possible.


    Update: Sony has acknowledged the attacks on Twitter.

    No idea. Some of its up, some of it's "limited". Guess that's what they mean about Microsoft doesnt have everything in one datacenter.

    Is this some sort of ego trip like on Die Hard 4.0 where they want to prove something and they're probably right but just end up pissing everyone off

    If they were targeting Live, they failed miserably..

    Its fine now. I'm not convinced they actually targeted it.

    I was able to sign in to psn on my tablet through the app after that was down all day as well. I'll have to try out the ps4 later.
