The Lizard Squad, an infamous hacking group that has successfully brought down gaming servers for a variety of games and services during the past few months and even issued a bomb threat recently, was able to take down Xbox Live late Monday night. The group likely used a DDOS attack to make Xbox Live unavailable to gamers, and the group even went back to posting on a Twitter page about the attack, despite Twitter suspending the group’s account a few weeks ago. Lizard Squad noted that the attack on Xbox Live was simply an early Christmas gift for Microsoft, and that the unavailability of Xbox Live is the first of more things to come in the weeks leading up to Christmas.
