First of December, 2014 is an iritating day for xbox gamer. Users failed to log in to XBox Live. It is apparently that XBox Live server running too many request. Many XBox owners tweets this issue via their twitter, while Microsoft service status didn’t report any problems. Some reports they got 8015909 error code whenever they tried to log in to XBox Live.
A shocking recognizance revealed from a group of hackers named Lizard Squad. They claim that they are responsible for bringing the XBox Live server down. Lizard Squad warned that this little attack is merely a little present a month before Christmas. They promised to give a much colossal present for XBox Live and its gamers on Christmas.
It is not only XBox Live server that they bomb with Denial of Service Attack (DDoS). This group of Lizard has made a name for itself taking credit for a number of DDoS attack to some great gaming server such as League of Legends, Grand Theft Auto, Battle Net, and even Playstation Network. Funny fact is, we have to remember that DDOS attacks shouldn’t really be considered as “hacks”. There is a difference between a real hacks – where some data or information is stolen – and DDoS attack. DDoS attack means that whoever responsible has overwhelmed the targeted server (XBox Live in this case) with huge requests so that the server runs out of resource and shut down. It is usually bring the technician to think for a second to resolve the problem and bring everything goes back to normal.
However, random trolls like this, for any reason, brings disadvantage for some people, and shouldn’t be treated as simple jokes. Gamers and its game provider (and people who called themselves hackers) should go hand in hand in making this game culture a happier and healthier world to play.XBox Live hacked down, 5.0 out of 10 based on 1 rating
