The Lizard Squad are back to their old antics yet again by taking down Xbox Live for many UK users.
Xbox Live seems to be working fine now. Issue mainly affected Xbox 360 users in the UK for 90 minutes or so.
OH FFS these losers again. Do they really not have anything better to do at Christmas and are so lonely that they'd sit in their mums basement doing this so called 'hacking'
why dont they hack for the good. im sure its more rewarding, we are all geeks not prats
http://support.xbox.com/en-... Xbox Live is working? I'm on it now
@septic Yup, I am also online. No problems. Do people just believe everything they read? I feel these Lizard virgins can send a tweet and everyone believes them. http://s11.postimg.org/v1z3... Xbox Live Status Services Xbox Live Core Services up and running Purchase and Content Usage up and running Website up and running TV, Music and Video up and running Social and Gaming up and running
I thought they said XLive would be down for good... Lulz.
Yup it only affected the 360 and even that can't be attributed to this wannabe hacker group. I guess the disagrees are from people being disappointed?
Love the xbox fanboys comment on psn going down before this became news. Just hilarious.
I honestly hope these scumbags die
I don't know why they can't just focus on north korea. I mean...that would be more rewarding than screwing with people who play video games.
Whoever disagreed with this is a genuine a-hole.
Serious question. Are consoles allowed in North Korea?
Serious answer. No. there are no consoles allowed in North Korea. Their internet and cell phones are limited to only government run networks. No outside access is allowed. If someone manages to access the outside world, it is a death sentence. Only government agencies and a few highly placed individuals even have internet access. The entire country only has 4 internal networks and 1028 active IP addresses.
@ironwolf- Wow... that is insane. I figured the answer was no, but thought it could've been similar to what the situation in China was prior to this past year. Talk about completely controlling the traffic of information in a country. Poor people over there that are born into that. I don't get why the world hasn't truly banded together to remove the shackles from that country. Why does China protect them? It may be risky, but it's the right thing to do. I'm not saying America or anyone else need be the world police, but people shouldn't have to live like that.
I hate you Lizard Squad, You have taken down Xbox Live for the last time. I will not stop until you are all behind bars. I am so upset right now, think of all the poor starving children with no food or shelter? How are they going to be able to play on GTA V tomorrow morning on there brand new XBONE consoles.
Damage Control much? Defending your petty console Brand...
I take it by not stopping until they are behind bars that you are going to do something about it? Or are you just gonna whine? it sucks, but I'm starting to believe that these guys aren't causing as much trouble as they're taking credit for. Find it funny that on the PSN article about this you were saying you were on XBL....also, why weren't you so mad about it on the PSN article?
Yeah I well at least the one's with their brand new PS4' s and WIIU's will be happy.
Is it completely down? or just the Friends List again?
From the status page on the Xbox website, it looks like three apps are having problems. I am on right now in N.Ireland and my friends list is fine.
Realistically its probably working. Every time this site says something is down im on the network just fine. Which is why i usually brush over these articles
Lizard squad is a joke. They watch for any service interruption and then claim it was them. STOP LISTENING TO THEM THEY ARE A JOKE. if live goes down at all tomorrow or any service it will be because most of the world will be home and not worming and will be trying to access these services at the same time in addition to all the new people logging in, updating things, downloading content and games, watching movies etc. It won't be because these idiots did anything because THEY DONT EXIST.
Im on xbl now.
LOL down for 90 minutes for 360 users in the UK? So much for down for good lizard squad..
Restart you Xbox and let me know if you packet loss is at 100%
Mine says the packet loss is 100% as well. What is packet loss?
It's time to US, UK and all ally armies join forces and take down this global threat.
They are not a threat. DDos attacking Live/PSN is not a threat. It's an annoyance. The US, UK and their allies have done worse hacking on a "global threat" level.
I think it was a joke. I laughed.
Dear ISIS, new target, monkeyspank squad, aka lizard squad, part time hackers, full time masturbators. Also, no need to post it, we take your word....
Im online with Xbox one... The store seems to be working. Downloads too.
It's just some 360 users having sign in issues... that's about it. These guys are a joke, still waiting for Xbox Live to be brought down permanently on Christmas :P
Sad,scum,vermin.Three words that come to mind.
Yes.. and we all know what needs to be done with vermin!
these people seriously need to grow up.
Good idea guys, lets destroy all the computer tech that we need to be able to hack in the first place and annoy people who share your interest.
I'm in Canada and it's up and running fine for me.
Canada is in the UK?
Well am in the uk (London) and it has been working flawlessly for me all day! i am on xbox live via my xbox one at this very moment! I doubt allot of people are affected, if any its a minor amount of players probably. I still want to see how a bunch of ddos small time game boy level hackers manage to knock xbox live offline forever which is what they claimed they would do this Christmas day! LMAO these kids couldn't hack a calculator never mind a multi billion dollar company! I hate how people keep calling it hacking, it is not hacking per se, it is just spamming the servers with so many commands that it overloads and blocks all other incoming and outgoing traffic! lizard squad can go screw themselves! bunch of little virgin pansies living under their mums skirts!
The commonwealth of Canada the uk means united kingdom of great Britain, Scotland and Ireland the rest of country's are part of the commonwealth of great Britain.
You'd actually be shocked to know how many places are part of the commonwealth.. The queen technically rules over about 50 countries..
yah! Read a book before down voting me.
Here we go again
I thought these guys were arrested and taken down by that other hacking group?
That, and DDos attacks are so 2014... They have 0 chance of ever getting any demands met, or allegations taken seriously. For that you need to be a nuclear power like North Korea, for example..?
Think they were doxxed and all the information sent to authorities, but don't think anyone was arrested. The story was never verified, and as I recall, Anon actually said they didn't care about it, but I have to admit my recollection is fuzzy on the whole thing.
Hmmmm, not for me
Why the disagrees?
LOL ignore it man, this website is infested with Sony fan boy 8yr olds who automatically bubble you down and disagree if you say anything positive towards xbox or negative towards Sony! sadly the community has gone to shit on N4G! They are mostly either broke ass man child's or are kids, either way they are single console owners and so feel they have to defend their chosen piece of plastic to the death like some of us would defend our mothers/wives and kids. LMAO disagrees incoming, along with bubble votes.
LonDonE you sound like more of a child than any of the fanboys on here once you start with the insults you just look silly
Why on Xmas. Smh
Bunch of basement dwellers trying to ruin people's fun cause they have no friends to play with, i am from the UK and i can sign out and sign back in again but it is affecting some people, I really don't see the point in DDoS attack's they are pointless, Microsoft are normally quick on fixing this sort of stuff so hopefully they get it sorted for those people.
Fine for me. Its not been down at all
i smell bs, the service is up, and the squad was arrested, i smell bs
Oh god...here w go again...they actually are fulfilling their promised his time...these dudes are scumbags., they probably fap to this crap...
OK I think that's enough, i think we need to gears of war these guys, I'm talking chainsaws and shotties. I get to be Cole BTW.
Called it and got a hell of a lot of disagrees.. would be a satisfying "told you so" if people weren't struggling to get on XBL
lol these losers again. Craving that attention :D DDoS'ing a gaming service...YOU GUYS ARE HEROES!! /s Seriously though, it's pathetic. You give "hacking groups" a bad name by this childish amateur bs. There's literally no skill, in DDoS, and the fact that these lizard c*nts continue to do it shows they're nothing but kiddies who Googled how to do it. No progression, no "bigger" targets, no cause...nothing. Just attacking normal gamers and fapping to tweets about it. Seriously pathetic man.
They're just script kiddies, and at this point they're getting WAY too much attention for childish shite. I guarantee you that they're not even old enough to recognize the Amiga.
And so it begins.
Wasn't down for me, been playing destiny, fh2 and gta tonight with my pals.
Adapt some third world practices and cut their hands off. Get the toes too. Make it so their favorite hobby is actually a challenge.
It looks like they where targeting Xbox 360 owners. All is good on the 8th generation Xbox. EDIT: Looks like PSN is being attacked
THEY HAVE TAKEN DOWN PSN IN THE US
oh shit. My Live has been disconnecting this whole afternoon and I'm in NA...
It sucks that they are doing this at this time of year. ):
PSN is DOWN TOO>< PS4!
What system, where? I was just playing PVZ PS4 (uk) a few minutes ago and no problems at all.
PSN is down. Maybe just Christmas overload versus hack?
So much for FOREVER. lol!
