The Playstation Network and the Xbox Live environment have been attacked by the Lizard Squad and the effects were visible on the social media networks. Thousands of gamers started to complain that they were unable to play their favourite game. Kim Dot Com also complained that he was unable to play the Destiny game, so he decided to help these “friendly” hackers with a couple of vouchers, all he asked was the end of the DDoS attacks on the gaming platforms.
But did you know that earlier this month, a group which claimed to be the “Finest Squad” said that they had captured a “Lizard Squad” hackers? The sad news about this is that it is a complete hoax.
Since Christmas day, I’ve noticed a diminishing amount of support for ‘the finest’. I wonder why that is. I suggest you unfollow them.

Now it seems that the Anonymous collective is claiming that they are able to stop the “Lizard Squad” from continuing their attack plans.
Hey Kim Dot Com, can you please join Anonymous so you can pay off the Lizard Squad from performing attacks on the gaming platforms and TOR networks?! – it is the only way Anonymous has a chance. Nah, just kidding.
I do not see Anonymous completing this task. The Anonymous collective is having a hard time on its own, and it is now claiming that it is capable of hacking a “serious” group of hackers? Nah, I do not see that happen.
