It seems no operating system is safe, as a group of hackers decided to hack the gaming networks on Christmas day. A group who calls them self “The Lizard Squad” was reportedly behind the alleged hacking that took gaming services off line, and they made the statement, “I have the nation on strings,” and the networks still remain to be down after being brought back shortly for just a few hours, disabling all the gamers to play those precious new gaming systems they received on Christmas day.
Gamers have been begging The Lizard Squad to return their gaming services on Twitter, but their cries have yet to make an impact on the group, leaving 48 million Xbox users, and 110 million Playstation members with no ability to play online.
The Lizard Group claims themselves to be the “next generation Grinch,” There is no evident reason as to why they hacked the system, and one member said simply, “because we can.” Others believe that it’s because the operating systems have application, which allow the film “The Interview” to be downloaded, but not yet confirmation on anything has been released.
They did say they wanted to show that the operating systems could be compromised and that no one is safe. While they did want to express that people should not be concerned with video games and such material items on a day like Christmas, and that is something to be agreed with, that is not their decision to make and if they do not have any real intentions they should return the services now that the holidays have passed. There has yet to be any confirmed perpetrators behind the hacking, but investigators do have several leads.
