Lizard Squad Start Selling DDoS Attack Services
Ashley Allen / 2 years ago
It seems that the Christmas DDoS attacks on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network by hacker group Lizard Squad could have been an elaborate marketing campaign. On Tuesday morning, Lizard Squad announced on Twitter that it will begin selling custom DDoS attack services, under the name Lizard Stresser.
Want a website attacked? Pay anywhere between $6 and $500, depending on the size of the site, via Bitcoin and Lizard Squad will oblige. $130 a month will get you 30,000 seconds (about 20 days) of sustained attack, while $500 earns an unlimited attack.
Lizard Squad member dragon told The Daily Dot that the Xbox and PSN attacks were “a huge marketing scheme. Playing games on a Twitter is fun, but it comes down to the money. The objective here, for me at least—can’t speak for others—is money.”
Three hours after launch, 25 people had already paid for the DDoS service. According to dragon, Lizard Squad hopes to keep the service running for a “minimum of one year.”
