Lizards are taking down servers. Again.
The hacking group that have recently come into the spotlight, Lizard Squad, have once again stepped up to claim responsibility for the attacks against Sony’s PlayStation Network Servers. This attack and claim of responsibility comes after threats were made to take the Xbox Live Servers offline on December 25th.
The group has been engaging in a series of attacks against video game servers for some time now and for no discernible reason and whilst some have been using these attacks as a platform to boost their own fame, Lizard Squad seem to have no clear goal outside of mass aggravation.
They recently tweeted “PSN Login #offline #LizardSquad” but it is not yet certain whether or not the attack was a success or not with many users reporting usability. So who knows what’s going on? This does show one thing. The era of always online games can very easily be brought to a grinding halt.
