Hacker group Lizard Squad claims to be responsible for bringing down the servers for a number of Activision and EA games over the weekend.

Destiny and Call of Duty were both seemingly targeted with distributed denial of service attacks, although their online services are now back up and running. Lizard Squad subsequently claimed to have taken down EA servers too.

 

According to Kotaku, it's the second time this month that Lizard Squad has targeted Activision's popular shooter games.

 

PlayStation Network was taken offline for the better part of a day in late August, with Lizard Squad claiming responsibility.

 

The hacker group said at the time that it had carried out similar attacks on Xbox Live, Hearthstone, League of Legends and Path of Exile.

 

It also sent a Tweet claiming that an American Airlines flight carrying Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley from Dallas to San Diego had explosives on board, forcing the plane to be diverted for security reasons.
