This Latest Lizard Squad Attack Fell Totally Flat

I noticed something curious on Twitter last night: infamous hacker group Lizard Squad had promised that they would be sharing their next target soon, and last night they appeared to settle on an old favorite: F2P MMORPG Runescape. They tweeted that they would be attacking in ten minutes, so I figured I’d stick around to see what happened. Sure enough, the game appeared to go offline around ten minutes later, with a couple of Twitter users reporting having trouble logging in and the website appearing to go offline for a few minutes. Not the biggest target, but still. Then, the website loaded. Everything appeared to be running smoothly about ten minutes later — the tweets announcing the attack disappeared.
