Lizard Squad's involvement is not confirmed.

I can still play my single player games. Well at least the ones I want to play. I haven't checked the others. Plus Steam is up still. :P

Don't hate the people who are exposing the weaknesses in this anti-consumer business model, blame the companies that put it together in the first place.
Yeah, you're right, it's Sony's fault that the hackers are preventing me from getting online right now... you're an idiot. I'm assuming you run around and say don't hate the player hate the game? I hope you fucking die a horrible death along with these hackers. Not to mention, you're an idiot. It probably sucks being you, being an idiot, life is probably hard for you. I would get some education or surround yourself around stupid people so life isn't so depressing. I'm assuming you do, which would be your family or dumbass friends that listen to your crap. Or maybe you don't have any friends or family which is why you are on this forum saying idiot things because you're hoping maybe other people on the internet will think that you are important and have deep, intelligent things to say. Too bad you're an idiot and what you said probably took the same intelligence that my cat has to take a shit in the litter box.

WOW!
I don't fully agree with what Pacer had to say, but to wish death on someone you don't know, over a post on a gaming website is fucked up. Sounds to me like it's you that has the hard life with nothing to do during the holiday season except play video games, and fantasize about the death of some anonymous guy on the web.

I hope these hacking fools realize they are bringing up an entire generation of techies now that will hate hackers and will do everything possible to stop them in their future careers.

I don't know about that but I'm in for mandatory sentencing 20 years sounds good. Don't care if it doesn't stop them but knowing some douche is sitting their best years in prison for being a douche is good with me.

I mostly just lurk here now, but I thought I'd post this. Looks like Lizard Squad might have just gotten doxxed. I don't know if it's legit. Sharing because it might be relevant.

Oh, Lord. Usual bullshit from the master of hypocrisy, cynicism and delusions. People deserve to be hacked and have their good times ruined simply because they prefer consoles? While you happen to be a console owner yourself? There is no end to your stupidity. Simply none.

Unless I'm missing something here, feel free to correct me (although you and correct don't usually go together very well).

Go back and look at the other half of the post you chose to ignore as usual. Then again reading comprehension and critical thought isn't your thing.

Every time something like this happens, I close my eyes and try to relate to the hackers. But then I realize I know what a vagina looks like in person, and I realize I'll never understand their plight. Poor bastards.

He's an edgy 4chan /b/tard.

He's got edge sharper than a Ginsu and you can't deal with it.

Yeah there is no rubber stamp solution to someone throwing a bunch of traffic from a number of servers at your shit. But I think they could probably do more. Akamai has a service (App layer? I forget the name) that specifically addresses DDoS attacks. If I was trying to make my service more DDoS proof (and lets face it, console makers get a lot of hate so it is probably a good idea), I would abstract my first layer of user authentication to be just a brute force counter, looking for something like 5 user login attempts in under a second - imposing a 20 minute wait on anyone who failed it. I would then have Akamai cache that task (effectively, that means they run it) and only users who pass that are habdled by my actual service.

Full disclosure: I am an ecommerce developer, not a game developer. We do have to have strategies for DDoS attacks though.
