Hackers Claim Takedown Of Battle.net, League Of Legends, EA.com

Quote:
A group of hackers going by the name DERP has launched DDoS attacks on a number of big games and websites today, bringing a number of them down, including the homepage of Electronic Arts.


The attacks have been focused on a single gamer - Phantoml0rd - and have been systematically trying to crash all of the games he regularly streams on his Twitch page, including World of Warcraft and League of Legends. Both of those games were brought down for a small time earlier today, as you'll see below.








The group - or maybe it's just one guy, we're looking into it - then moved onto other targets like Club Penguin and Electronic Arts, whose website EA.com was still down at time of writing.




We've contacted Riot, EA and Blizzard, and will update if we hear back.

They also called the police to his house, citing a 'hostage situation.'

I really do think PL handled the situation poorly but having 140k viewers and playing ads, that made him a rich man.

He handled it better than most people would.

I'd like to see you make completely rational decisions after:
  • Potentially having your career shut down
  • Having your personal info leaked
  • Having cops come to your door for something you have no idea about
  • Having your house searched
  • Having a gun pointed at you
  • Getting arrested

and whatever else happened.

I've had everything but the first two happen to me. He just used this as time to advertise himself out there even though he had nothing to do with the hacking and ddos'ing the games. I just think he could've possibly done a lot more than just sit there and talk with the guys and take in ad revenue. All the cop stuff happened happened after he sat on stream for hours.

It's called self control. A lot worse shit happen to people and yet they continue to remain calm and content, as life goes on.

Not everyone is the same. Tiny things can break down one person, whereas another person can still stand their ground after losing everything.

Anyway PhantomL0rd did fine, actually it was good on his part to actually take advantage of the situation, no matter how douchey it may seem.
