Lizard Squad Takes Credit For XBL And PSN Christmas Outages
The notorious Lizard Squad hacker collective has taken credit for taking down both Xbox Live and Playstation Network on Christmas day.By Jake Godin | December 26, 2014
Sony’s got to be sick and tired of hackers by now. A group that calls itself the “Lizard Squad” is claiming responsibility for bringing down Sony’s Playstation Network and Microsoft’s Xbox Live over Christmas day.
Christmas is an especially bad time for both networks to go down as all of the folks opening brand new Playstation 4 and Xbox One systems in the morning wouldn’t be able to get too far in setting their online accounts. (Videos via YouTube / Anthony Vessicchio, IGN)
