You would think......first time was bad enough, but to allow this a 2nd time is unacceptable.

What are we paying for with PSN? Not upgraded security, apparently

Getting a Distributed Denial of Service attack is basically getting your network flooded with garbage information that then clogs up the information flow from legitimate users. It has nothing to do with your login security (which is what a hack is).

People use the term hack to mean, 'service being screwed with by bored 13 year olds....'

There's no way to protect yourself 100% against a ddos attack. No matter how much money you have.

It's reported that this same group is also attacking Blizzard, Riot (LoL) and Grinding gears.

Apparently earlier last week they also DDos the East coast servers of Valve...

Now that this same group of morons has more or less shown themselves as sympathizers with ISIL (wether as a joke or not), welcome on the CIA and NSA watchlists?

Did you even read my post? Sigh. People are idiots.

Again, this is NOT a security issue. There is no "hacking" happening here. You don't get to redefine a term that has been in use and defined for decades just because you're too clueless to know the right definition.

A DDoS is the equivalent of a hundred thousand spammers sending you junk email. They aren't hacking your account, they're just flooding your inbox so that the actual mail you want to recieve is hard to find and arrives late (if at all).

The only thing you can do to defend against a DDoS is try and block the traffic from the offending senders, but modern DDoS attacks often use computers compromised by viruses, so the data flood often comes from what would otherwise look like legitimate locations.

Incredibly stupid thing to do. You can risk jail time for just carrying out a DDOS, but link yourself to a terrorist group as well? Asking for long, long sentences.

Sony's up and running, unfortunately these people are also ddosing internet routers around the country at the moment, so if your "path" to Sony runs through a place that has not fixed it yet you still can't get in.

*EDIT* Per Smedley anyway, I still can't get in.

As for this one, it does sound like some basic security measures would make such issues moot and for large companies to not have these things in places is downright scary.
You should probably research how a DDoS works. It could happen to anyone.

They are associating themselves with a terrorist group. CIA , FBI are now on you

They will no doubt have the FBI on their ass now since they're making claims of having explosives on a flight to LA.

Apparently they were posting pictures of the IS flag. I didn't think humanity could become this stupid, but I guess they've been successful in lowering the bar even further.

Looks like the flight got redirected. Feds going to be all up in this now.

John Smedley @j_smedley 4m
Awesome. Flight diverted to Phoenix for security reasons.

There's no way these guys are adults, this has to be a bunch of teenagers thinking they're freaking hilarious. JusT look what happened to the guys a few years they got a nice prison term, hopefully these guys do too.

I think this falls under terror laws and natural security so punishment should be more severe.
