Hacker squad plans DDoS attacks on PlayStation Network, Xbox Live this Christmas

Forget the Grinch, there’s someone else who wants to steal Christmas. Phantom Squad, an online hacker group, has threatened to shut down Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network this Christmas by unleashing a series of DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks — coordinated barrages of falsified incoming server traffic that causes the system to crash. “We are going to shut down Xbox Live and PSN this year on Christmas,” the hackers tweeted. “And we are going to keep them down for one week straight. #DramaAlert.” This could cause a big problem, because a lot of people are expecting to receive new gaming consoles on Dec. 25. If Phantom Squad is successful, this would be the second year in a row that these gaming networks go offline. Last year, the infamous hacker group Lizard Squad took credit for shutting down Xbox Live and PSN for two days. The group demanded more retweets and Twitter followers in exchange for restoring the servers. Phantom Squad, which said it has no relation to Lizard Squad, claims they’ve previously performed smaller outages on the gaming community servers, as well as other website such as Reddit.

Hacker Who Crippled Xbox Live Convicted of 50,700 Counts, Dodges Prison

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The devious, brazen Finnish hacker who ruined Christmas ‘14 just got the book thrown at him in his homeland’s court: 17-year-old Julius Kivimaki was sentenced today to a two-year suspended sentence. Finland’s Kaleva.fi reports Kivimaki, who not only took responsibility for wrecking Sony and Microsoft’s online gaming networks with the briefly notorious “Lizard Squad” hackers but went on TV to brag about it, will probably avoid prison time altogether—assuming he stays out of trouble. Kivimaki was also found guilty of crimes related to credit card fraud and harassment. Source: Gawker
