Incase you didn’t realize it or where unaffected congrats but three of the biggest gaming services on the planet where down for parts of the weekend, with DDoS attacks hitting the servers of the PlayStation Network, Riot’s League of Legends and Blizzard’s Battle.net
Again if your not in the know DDoS is a fancy technical term meaning (distributed denial-of-service) which is an attack when bots are used to flood a system (usually with external communications requests), overwhelming it and making it unusable.
Blizzard was hit on Saturday, with service mostly restored by early on Sunday morning.
League of Legends was attacked on Saturday.
Sony’s issues had been ongoing but as of now Sony says the PSN is pretty much back
The DDoS attacks on Sony also extended to Sony Online Entertainment servers.
