Rushed the title cause I just wanna report this!
A group (or person) known as the Lizard Squad have been causing quite a stir of trouble today (twitter.com...
First they began to DDoS Sony's Playstation Network today preventing users from using services like Netflix, the PlayStation Store, and other online
Then they decided to post this:
Link To Post
The result had caused the plane to be redirected and searched.
On their twitter page you can see retweets of other people who were on the plane.
The target for their bomb threat was John Smedley the current President of Sony Online Entertainment.
John later stated
Yes. My plane was diverted. Not going to discuss more than that. Justice will find these guys.
John's twitter account: twitter.com...
It seems that the Lizard Squad has also been targeting Xbox's servers.
But what was really disturbing was when they posted this followed by an image of the ISIS flag:
Today we planted the ISIS flag on @Sony's servers #ISIS #jihad
For any other posts just go to their twitter which I had already linked.
To me, I think that the people behind this group are just kids who discovered a few tricks on the internet.
I have seen many groups of people who caused a large amount of mischief with DDoS attacks and such. But never have they gone as far as causing a
flight to be diverted due to a bomb threat.
I will try to update this thread with any new updates/events from these guys.
Here are a few articles:
From the article above:
An American Airlines spokesperson confirmed to The Arizona Republic that Flight 362 was diverted for security reasons. KPNX-TV also reported the FBI
was investigating the threat.
