Lizard Squad Pledge to Take down Xbox Live Forever This Christmas

Lizard Squad, a hacking group that has been grabbing a lot of headlines recently, has made one of their boldest claims yet; they’re going to try to take Xbox Live offline, forever!

While I doubt that they’ll be able to take it offline forever, I don’t doubt that it’s possible to cause severe disruption to online services over the holiday period. It’s also interesting to see the team take on so many big companies, as the longer they continue their campaign, the more likely they are to get caught.

There’s really nothing much you can do to prevent any of this, these hackers or whatever you want to call them are just out to disrupt anything they don’t like. If you want to be safe as possible, just make sure your Xbox Live password doesn’t match an account elsewhere on the web and/or remove your bank details, as you can always use store-bought top-up cards anyway.

Thank you VGStations for providing us with this information.
