Eve Online down

In an ever increasing amount of hacker attacks against video game companies and websites, both the Escapist Magazine’s website and the Eve Online servers have gone down recently.

The hacker group carrying out the attacks are known as “lulzsec” and hit the Escapist Magazine’s website host with distributed denial of service attacks, as well as CCP’s login servers for Eve Online. Once CCP became aware of the attacks, the servers were immediately taken offline and as an added precaution, their infrastructure was disconnected from the public internet. Minecraft’s login server as well as League of Legend’s login servers were also the targets of attacks from the group.

This is just the latest wave of attacks since Sony’s networks were compromised.
