    Hacker group Phantom Squad have claimed responsibility for PSN outages last night.

    Targeting several servers in a co-ordinated DDoS attack, Phantom Squad caused three servers to fail, as well as attacking 2K Interactive’s NBA 2K17 and EA’s Battlefield 1. Servers for GTA V failed briefly, too.

    Already before XMAS, and Hacker Groups are attempting to shutdown our online console game networks, with PSN an easy target.
    Sad news indeed, and its not even the busy period of the upcoming holiday break season when more gamers trying to get online! :(

      You know they also attacked XBL and brought them down so to only say PSN is an easy target is an over-exaggeration. Also they are nothing but skids who happen to have access to the Mirai botnet so they aren't doing anything special. Even Dyn couldn't do anything about it.

      thing is they brag that they took them down, but your not exactly a hacker for overloading a server with ddos attacks.

      everyone knows it becomes too much for any server to handle, regardless even NASA servers would eventually fail.

      end of the day these cntz who want to take fame in "over loading a server" are just attention seeking, they gain nothing from it, but thanks to their "because i can" attitude, its normal people that suffer.

      Also there should be a correction that it is NOT Phantom Squad doing these attacks. All Phantom Squad does is troll downdetector and anytime a service has a problem they say they caused the problem. The actual group of little shits is StarPatrol.
