PSN Seems To Be Suffering Intermittent Outages Due TO DDoS Attacks
The Lizard Squad continues to be annoying and worthless.
The Lizard Squad has been attacking Sony’s PlayStation Network again, and this has been leading to intermittent network outages over the last day or so. This was especially frustrating yesterday, as that was the last day that PlayStation users could log on to the PSN Store to avail of the three free games (one each for PS3, PS4, and PS Vita) that EA was offering to celebrate the 20th anniversary of PlayStation.
Sony seems to be aware of these attacks, and has promised that it is going to do something about them. “We are aware of the issues some users are experiencing, and are working to address them. We’ll keep you updated,” they said.
These aren’t the first DDoS attacks on PSN either, as they have been targeted by this very group several times in the last few months. The Lizard Squad also seems to have taken issue to Blizzard’s World of Warcraft, and Xbox Live in particular, promising that it will ‘end Xbox Live forever’ by Christmas.
