It’s becoming difficult to keep track of the hacking outbreak that has recently struck the gaming industry. Nintendo, Bethesda, Sony, Epic and Codemasters are the most high-profile victims thus far. Today, the cyber-criminal group LulzSec took credit for several more attacks that resulted in The Escapist, EVE Online’s Tranquility server and Minecraft’s multiplayer servers being taken offline. According to Joystiq, the organization is also responsible for an attack on the League of Legend servers. Those attempting to log in there are now being given a “server busy” response.
LulzSec used distributed denial of service attacks in their hacks and then proceeded to openly laughed at Escapist users, tweeting that “nothing like the great taste of raging gamers for lunch…you mad, Escapist users? Want some ice cream with your jelly?” Anyone else not seeing the humor in this?
