So much for the Christmas spirit. Sony’s PlayStation Network and Microsoft’s Xbox Live continued to battle network errors Friday morning after hackers attacked the gaming networks on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Xbox Live service is “limited,” according to its support page, while PlayStation is still offline. Users reported difficulty logging into both servers, suggesting that logon servers were the weak point in the networks’ security.
Hacker group Lizard Squad claimed responsibility for disrupting both video game networks, launching massive distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks that overwhelm compromised servers with an onslaught of traffic.
