It was reported on ANN also. This is probably connected to the PSN and Xbox Live hack (they both faced DDOS).

Speaking of ANN, they also faced DDOS attack attempt too. I think it could be the same group.

I doubt that, North Korea internet was down and just recovered yesterday. But this has to do with the PSN and Xbox live DDOS hack like I mention above. The Sony picture attack is even being questioned because it might not be North Korea that is behind this according to Yonhap News and KBS World News. I don't think North Korea was behind this after all. Maybe the Lizard Squad and Guardian of peace are maybe the same group. But we'll have to wait and see.

What do they have against a Legal Anime Service website?

There ain't much hate on North Korea anywhere except the forums, but lets be honest half the viewers doesn't even hang around here.

What, was someone bored? why ddos this site?


Perhaps CR had posted or done something offensive? No one just get out a hundred bucks to just DDoS a website because they are bored.


You underestimate the mindset of people that DDoS. If you go to CR's Facebook page there were plenty of people up in arms, those kinds of reactions are enough for some people. Add the fact that anime is still rather niche in the US and they could've just looked at it as a bunch of grown nerds crying about cartoons.

Not to mention I read they actually were renting out the botnets and all that for much cheaper than 100 bucks. As low as 6 bucks, so that's really nothing to lose to get some chuckles out of disgruntled fans.

It was the same reaction that the PS/Xbox people had. Sure it sucked that it was down (just as it sucked CR was down), but the over the top reactions people had about it were pretty outrageous. Granted the consoles were useless due to the day 1 updates, but we're talking 2 days, even less for the Xbox. Those kinds of overreactions are what the DDoS'ers wanted, and in the end got.

Want to thank Crunchyroll for getting back up after that nasty DDS attack. Hopefully the clowns that did it learned a lesson from some folks who did some door knocking...

Please note: DDoS attacks are not "hacks" or "hacking". In the simplest terms, it's traffic overload, flooding the server(s) to cause them to be inaccessible. Don't give them credit for something that anyone can use. It's like saying someone is military because they play Call of Duty.
