Hackers declare truce after attack on Xbox Live and PlayStation

WASHINGTON: Groups of hacker have describe a ceasefire after the attack on Xbox Live and the PlayStation network were said to have gone too far and spoiled the image of hackers.
Calling the outage of the online gaming platforms that began on Christmas Eve an “attack on Christmas”, Internet entrepreneur called for hacks of that kind not to happen again, in a video debate between Lizard Squad and other hacking groups.
Kim Dotcom made a deal with Lizard Squad — giving them vouchers for lifetime accounts on his Mega file storage service, which he said were worth about $300,000 — and it was that which the group said had encouraged them to stop the attack.
The group confirmed that they had stopped the attacks after making the deal. While service has not yet fully resumed on PlayStation Network, that is a consequence of so many people attempting to get back online and the networks trying to stop any similar attacks from happening in future, the group said.
Lizard Squad has claimed responsibility for the attacks, which lasted over Christmas day and into the weekend.
