Lizard Squad may not be the ones responsible for PSN DDoS attack
When it was reported earlier today that Sony's PlayStation Network was down due to a DDoS attack, it was believed to have come from a hacker group named Lizard Squad. That no longer appears to be the case as a new culprit has stepped up and claimed credit.
He goes by the name "Fame" on Twitter (@FamedGod), and apparently he's the true person behind the PSN DDoS attacks today. Admittedly, I'm not too familiar with the hacking scene, but it's said that he is a member of Anonymous. I don't know, nor do I care. I hate this hacking crap.
Not only does @FamedGOd take credit for the attack, but he also divulged the IP addresses for members of said Lizard Squad.
Why must someone take credit of ones work? LizardSquad couldnt hurt a fly. Decrypting a memory dump and finding the server was all my work.— Fame (@FamedGod) August 24, 2014

People think a skid group called "Lizard Squad" actually did something... lol. It was hard to find your main group IP either. 188.8.131.52— Fame (@FamedGod) August 24, 2014
According to Fame, the reason for hacking Sony was to teach them a lesson. "Learn and hire people for security you cheap ass company," he said.
If Sony wanted to they could easily HIRE a team to monitor servers and filter DDoS attacks. They too high a mighty to spend money. #RIP.— Fame (@FamedGod) August 24, 2014
He also threatened Xbox would be next to be hacked.
Sony has responded to the DDoS attack, telling PlayStation fans they are working to resolve the issues and restore service.
