GameZone: "Notorious hacker group Lizard Squad has struck again, this time taking down video game streaming website Twitch.tv and popular online game League of Legends."
That is so stupid , why ruin something everybody is enjoying , i hope a real hacker get your ip and send it to the feds .
You mean: https://twitter.com/FamedGo...
HA! (bubs to you good sir)
1: I'm sure the FBI has the best hackers in the world. 2: What is the chance that any of those IP addresses are real and not proxies? I'd say very low...
That's good. People shouldn't be playing leage of legends anyway lol
Oh Snap lol "Mess with the best! Die like the rest"
So this is the guy actually doing it? Then what's it matter that he reveled the IPs of the people claiming to do it? I honestly don't care WHO is claiming to do it. Just stop that shit. You're not helping anybody, you're just harming everyone involved. Man, at least Anonymous had somewhat of a cause. These assholes are just trolls with some spare time trying to piss off as many people as they can.
Maaaan can Lizard Squad take down my college network? That would be greatly appreciated - for the next 4 months.
...why would that be appreciated?
Silent - Um, I imagine that was a joke about him not being able to do classes or homework if the network is down..
Do harm to who deserves, not just people who like to play a game or watch other s play. Mike you are none to tell people what they should play.
just to think that some lizard squad can take down so big servers...
How is it that NO ONE can find these guys?
Oh they know who they are. It's just a matter of time.
Just be aware that they may already have an idea who they are but since they are probably living in the US, Canada, or Great Britain and are likely in high school, law enforcement may be taking their time gathering more information and preparing a better case so that once charges are brought it will be more difficult to wriggle out of said indictment. One of the worse things that happens is prosecutors rush to charge before the case is more airtight. All it really means is the higher these clowns fly the more painful the fall when they auger into the ground.
In a world where an average, everyday man or woman can track their iPhone themselves if they've lost it and our Governments can't even find some sad, low life "hackers". The same people who can't even find a plane that goes missing with 227 people on board ¬¬
I'm with morgan, I bet they know exactly who they are. The biggest mistake they made was supposedly being responsible for the bomb threat. Homeland security takes that crap really serious, which they should. THat's when they pretty much sealed their fate as not being a small investigation.
Yea it's sad when people loose their mind. Gotta keep your mind tight, and sharp. Anyways. Maybe it's the government facilitating the attacks just like they facilitated 9/11. To put us into a certain mindframe to advance their agendas. Todays agenda. Well who knows. Maybe control the internet, maybe to make people think hacking is a bigger problem than it is. Ya know the government isn't all sunshine and roses, and aren't for your interest.
Just stop man...
Alex Jones is that you? :P
Really, conspiracy theories already come on. I agree our government used 9/11 to advance their own agenda, well namely the Bush administration did. All the facts came out about those lies already.
Yeah, that's the Governments plan. Take down the servers for League of Legends. Brilliant, you solved the case. You really don't believe that nonsense, do you?
Because those are game networks everybody can just switch games but when psn went down you can't play any game online at all
FINALLY someone who understands the difference. Plus LOL is F2P- People actually PAY for PSN. And yes, Xbox live had issues too, but it was nowhere near as bad, in fact some people speculate that ONLY diablo 3 players were having issues. No one I have spoken to or friends were having any issues, and some of my friends were even PLAYING diablo 3 on the Xbox one. And that may be in part due to BLIZZARD being attacked, but one thing is for sure: When very few people have a issue, or the issue is only with a specific game, it will ALWAYS be insignificant compared to an entire service shutting down for most of the the day like PSN did.
Well you pay 15$ a momth to play WoW, Diablo is always online. Your argument is invalid
It doesn't matter how sophisticated your DDos protection is if the attack is large enough.
Nexius- People CAN just switch games on a PC, and when diablo, WOW were affected, then oh well- it's just one game, not a computer's ENTIRE online infrastructure. League of Legends is free to play, so NOBODY should be as upset as people affected by Activision/Blizzard, and even MORE so- the people who were unable to USE PSN COMPLETELY for a whole damn day. YOUR point is the invalid one.
When lol goes down nobody panics LOL!!!!!! ? You obvsly don't visit the forums,
How come no Steam attacks , come on now they are guilty like them other companies. They have their fair share of screwing people over.
Prob the same reason why microsoft hasn't gone down or ea. Good security. Steam or none of these companies should be attacked. It prevents paying costumers from playing games or watching streams and doesn't solve anything other than getting delinquents in jail and wasting everyones time.
Was trying to determine , if they pick at random or screw with those that have caused them issue of sorts or they are not that good.
My xbox live went down.
"Prob the same reason why microsoft hasn't gone down or ea. Good security" Except XBL was crippled by the attack...so much for that theory.
Hey, NSA. Make yourselves useful.
I'm sure they have bigger fish to fry than a DDoS group.
Size doesn't matter. They'll fry every fish under the sun. Twice. Then backlog the experience.
So bomb threats to multiple airways is not big enough?
@sckipt That could do it.
there was also a bomb threat involved, so...
@Bladesfist I dont think you know that they did do bomb threats....sckipt wasnt saying thats what they need to do to get on the NSA radar, he was saying thats what they did
They should really backtrace this...they done goofed.
The site is working, dunno what are you guys talking about.
Because people submitted headshots with writing on their heads.
I wonder who's better at hacking, the Lizards or Anonymous. Which one could take down the other?
Lizard is just DDOS'ing sites and services by blowing up servers. It's not actually hacking. They basically just overload servers and make them unusable.
Anonymous. Those guys are the real deal. These guys are just punks being assholes for the sake of it. All they've proven is that they can DDOS. They haven't actually hacked anything. They tried to take down Microsoft but couldn't. They even gave Microsoft props on their Twitter for having good security. But again, they haven't proven to be skilled at anything other than DDOS, which anyone can do, really, as long as they have a program or enough people. Anonymous has proven time and again that if they want something, they can pretty much take it.
There were xbox live issues from the DDOS. Reference the same Twitter page. Experienced issues myself. Even though it wasn't to the same extent, it happened. I do agree with you though, some DDOS'ers doesn't equal hackers. Anyone with a few dollars to blow can have an online service shut down.
I stop reading at "Notorious hacker"... It's not hacking what they have been doing!! I just quit to explain the f*cking diference gosh...
I was wondering why LOL was low in views because they are usually #1. Only time I watch LOL stream is when a sexy girl playing but other than that I don't like LOL. Still Lizard Squad need to stop.
Lizard Squad? I assume all the cool names were taken?
Why couldn't they have called themselves the tunnel snakes instead? THEY RULEEE
So THAT is why I could not stream my game on Twitch earlier. Freaking d'bags!
The fact that these clowns are so relentless just goes to show that they are amateur hour. They've been ddos'ing servicea for the past 3 days straight, and days before that they took down a couple others. Not to mention they made a bomb threat, which takes it all to a whole other level. They've taunted the FBI. They are completely admitting to everything on their Twitterand being completely childish and obnoxious in their tweets. Not only that, but their targets make no sense with the reasoning they've given. They claim to be going after big corporations that aren't spending money that they earn from their customers to boost security, yet they attack free services like Battlenet, or things that aren't even services like Vatican City's website? They're just screaming for attention. All signs point to them being kids who either think they are untouchable, or kids who want to be caught and be famous. They have to know that the more attacks they make, the easier it is to find them. And again, if you read their tweets, they are clearly kids. I would say high school kids, or kids fresh out of high school.
Specially tweeting ISIS flag saying they planted that on PSN servers. FBI will treat as a terrorist threat or act.
It's funny, this is like nostalgia for me. Back when I learned about DDOS attacks in pre-programming 1 in high school (which was like the very first class you take years ago) I too thought "how cool, I could attack big sites like Yahoo!" Then I matured the next ten minutes and decided to program a widget for a website instead.....
Honestly just f*** these guys. You are not cool for taking down these networks because you can. In fact it's just stupid and you should feel bad for making gamers around the world struggle.
Believe it or not. FBI will probably catch them. If they do they'll possibly get mandatory 5 year sentencing since they posted a picture of ISIS flag saying we are planting this on PSN and xbox servers. The government can twist it and claim a terrorist threat. Which I hope so because they are taking fun away from people
Let's DDoS a site then call it "hacking" ROFL were so badass.
why have the feds not caught these guys yet i thought the "lizard squad" members addresses were revealed online already.
What are the reasons of attacking all of these companies and services? This hurts everyone and benefits only them for being pains in the ass just because they found out to be a script kiddy.
they cant be caught ever heard of internet cafe or library u use there cpus do your dirty work never go back simple when they trace ip god only knows who was using it at that time
ddos attack. it is when you overload the servers by logging into league of legends too many times so the servers have to catch up. anyone can do this it;s no hack. and they are trolls not hackers.
looks like their twitter has finally been taken down.
I saw that earlier also, they are back up now though...
Who cares what kind of game or console is being hacked??? There are more than 10,000 people using them because not everybody has the same preferances to like the same shit honestly.TBH im very pissed off cause now i cant play league of leyends beacuse of these assholes.I cannot play a normal game without disconnecting or lagging,it seems imposible to even win or kill a person.I hope the goverment do everything thats possible to just end this nonsence.Everybody has their own way of enetertaining themselfes and releaving their stress.Nobody deserves to have that liberty taken away.
