Funny that Microsoft's security was much easier to take down, contrary to what some claim. Also Sony seems to have implemented new security measures, which is also something we heard about after 2011, but this confirms it.


What part don't you understand, They DID NOT break Microsoft's or Sony's security. A DDoS is not a hack.

Who said i don't understand? I know the difference between DDOS and a hack. I'm saying they got Live down easier, like the article mentions, but you'd know that had you read it.

You stated Microsoft's security was much easier to take down. They DIDN'T take down microsoft's security.

If you ask me, these people are just seeking a lot of attention...



Nintendo was too cute to attack.

How do you know? I'll take their word over yours thank you very much. You are just assuming they DDOSed the service, who's to say they didn't hack it as well?



But but XBOX live is so much better, so secure, all hail MS!

And now they are doing it with a cause? They said it was PC master race the reason, because they wanna play Bloodborne. Don't lie on me.

Also, I had no problems with PSN this days, and I played a lot. Maybe I'm lucky, lol.

Oh, great. They have a "cause" now. It's bad enough to act like a dong. Don't act like a self righteous dong on top of it.

Its a DDOS attack... Its hard to stop for any company even if they have epic security. The only way to really try to "stop" it is to spend soo much money that even if they are being hit with a DDOS attack, their servers will have enough available bandwidth/ports that they can take the hit and still service the customers but thats a lot of money.

What is interesting however, is once its stopped, how much time the respective platform took to recover. Xbox took like what, 24 hours to get back online after the initial attack where as psn is still not fully up yet on ps4? Thats the place where I think Sony needs to work on is the recovery time after the attack has done its course. (That is assuming that the hackers were true to their word and stopped attacking both platforms at the sametime)

exactly this. It is not hacking lol.



 

 

Easier to hack?

XBL was down for like 8h & PNS is down for 2 days XD



For lulz (and a cause), these guys are multi-talented........dicks.
