Lizard Squad A member of the Lizard Squad, the hackers behind the major attacks on the PlayStation Network and Destiny’s network, has been arrested. 22-year-old Vinnie Omari went into Police custody after British law enforcement agents raided his home. He confirmed the raid, stating in an interview that the South East Regional Organized Crime Unit “took everything. Xbox One, phones, laptops, computer USBs, etc.” According to the Thames Valley Police, he was arrested “on suspicion of fraud by false representation and Computer Misuse Act offense.” Omari was released on bail shortly after the incident, and claims the charges are unwarranted. Ryan, another suspected member of the group, was also arrested and questioned. We will have to wait and see what the forensics team behind the investigation comes uncovers. Lizard Squad gained worldwide notoriety on December 25th when they took down the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live with DDoS attacks, which rendered both networks inaccessible by overwhelming their servers with excessive traffic. Millions of gamers and other user were left without service. A generous bunch that takes their work seriously, Lizard Squad has launched ‘Lizard Stresser’, a service that allows customers to use the hacking collective’s technology to launch a DDoS attack on any target of their choice. The price to use the service ranges from $6 to $500, depending on the length of the attack. In fact, a Lizard Squad member with the alias “Dragon” has stated that the attacks on Sony and Microsoft were all just a “huge marketing scheme” for Lizard Stresser. In addition to their attacks on Sony and Microsoft, the hackers brought down several other servers over the years. They state that they do it “because we can.” Are you interested in hacking? If so, will you stroke Lizard Squad’s ego by trying out the Lizard Stresser? Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone.
