So apparently a hacker group named Lizard Squad have taken Blizzard, Sony PSN, Microsoft and Riot servers offline in a DDoS (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial-of-service_attack) attack.

First of all, every company mentioned above have said that there's no information stolen... So don't worry about your information, DDoS isn't really hacking anyways so...

I have no problem whit a group DDoS'ing a company because that will only force the company that was DDoS'ed to improve their server infrastructure... But I must say I hope Lizard Squad goes to jail since they've crossed the line of what's acceptable to do as human beings. First of all, they tweeted out a tweet claiming that Sony's Online President Smedley had a bomb on a airplane.



And this has led to the plane being redirected to a closer airport to investigate.



So what do you think about this?


I think they're a bunch of asshats that shouldn't be allowed to exist.

They're a bunch of dicks with the mindset of misbehaving 8 year olds. 'Let's make everyone miserable, hue hue hue'. I hope these prats get sent to prison. Terrorist threats over videogames? Pfft. I'm a hardcore gamer but this is beyond ridiculous.

Wow... that's why my PS3 wouldn't sign on for a little while. I guess I have an excuse. I'm not on any big social network sites.

A company that hosts webpages and documents with an extensive network of servers is definitely the same thing as companies that host real-time online gaming.

They'd laugh because, even if successful, it doesn't affect anything.

Now, while I don't agree with what they did at all and think that it was totally wrong for them to do something like this, I do agree with the outcome that it will create in making the security and servers stronger. I'm not as much of a gamer as I used to be, but I do have a PS3 that I watch Crunchyroll on sometimes and my Mom and I both use it for Netflix. Most of the time I use my computer to watch stuff though. I do however believe that they should be found and punished for this.

On another note, that tweet only was implying that there was a bomb on the plane that Smedley was on, not that he was the one who brought it on there. What followed after is standard airplane and airport security measures, especially since after 9/11 in the United States.
