A group of hackers going by the name DERP has launched DDoS attacks on a number of big games and websites today, bringing a number of them down, including the homepage of Electronic Arts.

 

The attacks have been focused on a single gamer - Phantoml0rd - and have been systematically trying to crash all of the games he regularly streams on his Twitch page, including World of Warcraft and League of Legends. Both of those games were brought down for a small time earlier today, as you'll see below.

I know I tried to play BF on XB1 and it just would not connect to a game all night so I'm guessing that was the cause.

Battle.net hardly needs outside intervention to bring their systems down.

Steam is now down due to a DDoS from some of these stupid script kiddies. http://forum.notebookreview.com/gaming-software-graphics-cards/741714-ddos-attack-origin-steam-down.html

 

I hope they all find themselves sitting in a cold prison cell, see how funny they think it is then.

 

Steam works fine here, likely just a few of many servers.

I think the DDoS is over now or they blocked it.

 

Edit: Nevermind, down again. It's not the main store page by the way, it is the community market and the forums.

I don't know why people think DDoSing is hacking.  Unless they are hacking into all the computers to run LOIC... DDoS is just a bunch of computers sending a bunch of data all at once.  Nothing is being hacked, nothing is being taken, nothing is being broken into, nothing is being forced to do something it isn't supposed to do.   Hell.. most sites crumble with NORMAL use.. no need for a DDoS attack.
