UPDATE: THE ATTACKS HAVE CEASED ON PSN & XBOX LIVE. BOTH SERVICES HAVE FULLY RECOVERED (12/27/14)
Starting yesterday evening, users of Xbox Live and Playstation Network have had issues connecting online. The online issues seem to be coming from a hacking group called the Lizard Squad, a group that proclaims themselves cyber terrorists. The attacks were planned from their twitter page, @LizardMafia. The main reason why this hacking occured was due to a “battle” between two hacking groups, the Finest Squad (@FinestSquad) and the Lizard Squad.
Playstation and Xbox have responded to the issue and let users know on their twitter page:
