XBOX LIVE DDOS ATTACK SPECULATION

LAST NIGHT, XBOX LIVE AND THE XBOX WEBSITE WENT DOWN WITHOUT ANY NOTICE

     Cutter and I were enjoying a nice game of Madden 15 on the Xbox One until we both got disconnected. Everything was connected to the internet, and we restarted our internet as well just to make sure. After about an hour of trying, we just gave up and thought that it may have been down for maintenance. Cutter went to the internet and said- "People everywhere are saying it's down. Someone said Xbox got hacked." I told him that that probably wasn't the case, and we just gave up and went to bed. Before I fell asleep though, I came across some interesting things.

LIZARD SQUAD, A DDOS ATTACK TEAM

     Lizard Squad took the credit for why XBL was down, and even went as for to say this is just a "dose" of what is going to come on Christmas. Not only that, but you can see from their second tweet, it seems that they are taking the credit from the SONY leak of 5 digital movies (Annie, Fury, Still Alice, Mr. Turner, and To Write Love on Her Arms) and have left the company using fax machines and chalkboards to work out finances. BUT THIS ISN'T THEIR FIRST ATTACK
Earlier this summer, they attacked XBL, PSN, League of Legends, and Battle.net! They then targeted Twitch and placed a BOMB THREAT to ground a Sony executive's flight! Hopefully they will be stopped sooner or later, and players will not have to play offline this Holiday Season.
