DERP hacktivist group shuts down several games

A group of hackers going by the name DERP has launched DDoS attacks on a number of big games and websites today, bringing a number of them down, including the homepage of Electronic Arts.

The attacks have been focused on a single gamer - Phantoml0rd - and have been systematically trying to crash all of the games he regularly streams on his Twitch page, including World of Warcraft and League of Legends. Both of those games were brought down for a small time earlier today, as you'll see below.

The group - or maybe it's just one guy, we're looking into it - then moved onto other targets like Club Penguin and Electronic Arts, whose website EA.com was still down at time of writing.

 

I think the thing these script kiddies don't realize is that doing things like this will only force companies to change how the internet works. Cable companies already are lobbying to change the internet to a subscription based model, I think actions like this, PSN, and everything else only justify this for the government and companies who rely upon the internet.
