More Gaming Websites hacked

The infamous group, LulzSec, is targeting various gaming websites. Why? The exact reason isn’t clear. At this time they seem to be hacking and damaging various gaming communities simply “for teh lulz”. MSNBC compares these hackers to playground bullies at school. However, this group isn’t just out to steal your lunch; anything gaming related, whether it’s the company’s online store or a simple gaming blog are not off limits.

So, who is on the list? For gaming blogs, Escapist magazine appears to be the first victim of the group. Next, EVE Online, Minecraft, and League of Legends were all targeted and have had either their website’s login server taken down or their entire site taken down. Check out some of their tweets below:

Silly Eve have taken their entire network offline after our very simple DDoS attack. Oh well, another day, another lulz!

We’re eying up the next target… laying off Minecraft, so go play that. Preparing a cannon attack on our main artillery shells!

League of Legends login servers down. 😀

And that concludes our DDoS party: Escapist Magazine, Eve Online, Minecraft, League of Legends + 8 phone requests.

In fact, just yesterday they also hacked into Bethesda’s websites and obtained information which contained numerous amounts of user data.

We’re going to release lots of Bethesda/ZeniMax data today – however we might not release their 200,000+ users as we love Call of Cthulhu.

Bethesda, we broke into your site over two months ago. We’ve had all of your Brink users for weeks. Please fix your junk, thanks! ^_^

As MSNBC put it, “the question is, with LulzSec’s increasingly mean-spirited attacks, how many people are laughing?”
