Online mischief makers at LulzSec have targeted a bunch of gaming sites including EVE Online, Minecraft and League of Legends in the latest round of cyber shenanigans.
The outfit, which now calls itself "the world's leaders in high-quality entertainment at your expense," has garnered itself a bunch of 'Lulz' in a DDoS offensive it dubbed Titanic Takeover Tuesday.
First, gaming mag Escapist Magazine fell to a DDoS attack. EVE Online has been yo-yoing according to this twitter thread, with owner CCP tweeting: "Earlier we became aware of a DDoS and took all services offline. Our Security Team is conducting a thorough investigation".
The Lulzers said they were only targeting the game's log-in servers but it seems this was enough for CCP to take the game offline, when it realised something was afoot.
Also tumbling to the beat was Minecraft - the online game which yesterday boasted about how popular it is. Then League of Legends fell as the hackers took calls from online fans who submitted a list of targets they'd like to see fall.
"Snap your minds into a new realm, my friends. We did it because they couldn't stop us - and did it we did, as you'll see. We always deliver." LulzSec tweeted amid the carnage.
And it seems the phone line has spawned a new set of targets some of which are also now under attack. The outfit twitted last night: "5000 missed calls and 2500 voicemails from today". Games sites worldwide had better batten down the hatches.
