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.
