Lulzsec Targeting more Games for its Titanic Takeover Tuesday
The hacker collective known as Lulzsec has singled out MMORPG Eve Online, Indie-Hit Minecraft and RTS League of Legends as their next targets. All three games faced distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks on Tuesday and their login servers went down. Eve took its servers off the Public Internet when it realized what had happened. No news on when it would be back up. The Minecraft servers were the first to recover as they have faced massive DDoS attacks in the past, which might have helped them to rectify the situation faster. League of Legends seems to have fared no better.
The arm of Lulzsec seems to have grown long indeed and they seem to be soliciting targets now. They said this in a tweet:
