Lizard Squad have claimed responsibility for downing Google in Vietnam. The homepage was replaced with the message below that accompanies a picture of a yet unidentified person, possibly of one of the hackers.

“Hacked by Lizard Squad, greetz from antichrist, Brian Krebs, sp3c, Komodo, ryan, HTP & Rory Andrew Godfrey (holding it down in Texas)” – Lizard Squad

Google has released a statement on the incident, stating that no private information was taken.

“We’re aware that some users have been having trouble connecting to, or are being directed to a different website. We’ve reached out to the organization responsible for managing this domain name and hope to have the issue resolved shortly.” 

The hack is the latest in a string of hacks from Lizard Squad, attacking high profile targets. Most notably, the group claimed responsibility for a substantial outage of Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network at Christmas – a hack that drew a lot of anger from console owners. The fact that they’ve managed to take Google down for a whole country, shows that they may be upping their game.

    Your thoughts: lets make everyones lives miserable ,by denying them products they have paid for need to use for their employment…. then claim it’s all good fun, in the name of justice , to prove we can do it , or any other reason we can think of ,except we cant because we are lacking common sense. not even proud enough to use our real names , we hide behind a group name because we think that makes us look big , Only problem with this train of thought …Everybody in the outside world thinks you are idiots with many million brain cells absent without leave. I suspect employment is not on your agenda if you are then I just hope none of you are in an occupation which touches my life in any way ,

Real names? to what admit your illegality of actions to link yourself? hrmm, prob not. welcome to the internet son, i suggest you take your “employment income” somewhere else, the net ain’t here for kids and nor does it belong to YOU. it belongs to US, the people, so sorry?
