LulzSec Takes Down Minecraft, EVE Online Login Servers

by Mike Bendel June 14, 2011 @ 11:23 am

Hacker group LulzSec announced just moments ago that it has taken down the login servers that power Minecraft and EVE Online. This is the latest in a string of attacks that hit Sony, Bethesda, Nintendo, and others over the past couple weeks. Word on the antics comes from LulzSec’s boastful Twitter feed.

There’s no word yet on if account details of Minecraft or EVE Online users are safe. Prior LulzSec raids included leaked personal details, most recently on the 200,000 or so users of Brink. Those that have an account on either service may want to take extra precaution, just to be safe.

The group is also hammering games website Escapist Magazine with a DDOS attack, leaving the entire site inaccessible as of writing.

I guess no one is safe.

I'd thought it would be appropriate.

I can still log in to minecraft just fine

The Escapist is definitely down. Wonder why they're hitting them in particular.

edit: nvm - just seen the tweet indicating it's a response to some user comments over there.
