Blizzard knocked over by Lizard DDoS snowstorm
BATTLE.NET GAMING SERVICES were hit with a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack that forced users to eat Cheetos while not screaming at total strangers. Unless they decided to pop out for a bit.
Services and servers were down because of bad people, of course, and it is reckoned that regular gaming ruiner the Lizard Squad had its tail in the mayhem.
The Lizard Squad, which we have met before under similar circumstances, has claimed the scalp and boasted on Twitter about having access to official Blizzard accounts.
