PS4 and Xbox One to be hacked over Christmas
Remember when the networks for PS4 and Xbox One got tampered with by bored hackers over Christmas? Well, looks like it'll be happening again this year, which is irritating.
The Lizard Squad were responsible for the last outage, but this time, the people threatening to do it are called Phantom Squad. They've said that they're going to stick a fork in Xbox Live and PSN services for a full week over Christmas.
We should point out that this isn't strictly a hack, but rather, a DDoS attack, but no-one would read a story with a headline that says DDoS in it. No matter - arrests were made the last time this happened, so it is serious enough.
On Twitter, Phantom Squad said: "We are going to shut down Xbox Live and PSN this year on Christmas. And we are going to keep them down for one week straight."
And why are they doing it? Shits and giggles you assume. They've said that it because "cyber security does not exist". At least they've given Microsoft and Sony some time to get themselves together to try and thwart it, eh?
