The recent Xbox Live DDoS was just a taste of what’s to come

37 sec read

Xbox Live was down last night for tens of thousands of gamers. It was revealed pretty quickly that the outage was the result of a malicious attack. Now, hacking group Lizard Squad has claimed ownership of the attack and hinted at a much larger plan for Christmas. They fired this tweet out after 9 o’clock pm last night: “That’s a small dose of what’s to come on Christmas. #LizardSquad”

Xbox Live is online again after suffering an outage today, with a hacker group claiming to have DDoSed its servers. Their alleged antics left many in the United States and Canada unable to connect to the service at all, while others reported that only their friends lists were affected. Thankfully, it appears the service is now back up, with the Xbox Live status page reporting no problems. The group Lizard Squad took ‘credit’ for the outage on Twitter, and is threatening to do it again over Christmas, because some people are just like that. The group also claimed to be behind PSN’s issues back in August.
