Re: DDOS Attack on PSN

Aug 25, 2014

Between the DDoS attack, the bomb threat on the plane headed to my city, and not being able to access the apps and games on my PS3 on a rare day off, I hope the authorites do their worst to this person or group.

 

By authorities, I mean whoever catches them.

Well given that they made a bomb threat on a US airplane its now a matter of natinal security and from what I understand the FBI will be looking into them.

 

The DDOS stuff is honestly not nearly sa bad (legally speaking) as that bomb tweet. They could face some very stiff penalties.
