Game streaming service Twitch.tv and online game League of Legends have been hit by notorious hacking group “Lizard Squad”, leaving both services offline for gamers and spectators alike.

The hacking group, or what ever we should be calling them, launch a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack in the early hours of the morning. The first attach hit Twitch and shortly after the team took down Riot Games League of Legends services.

I’m not sure what’s with this idiots ruining gaming services for people, but it was only last weekend that the same team took down the Sony PlayStation Network. PSN has since been restored, but is still suffering some minor network issues.

What ever will come next? Seems it is pretty common these days for online games and services to be bumped offline and there is little to nothing we can do about it.
