Xbox Live is down right now and it’s due to a DDOS attack from Lizard Squad. The infamous hacker group has been targeting many services from 2k Sports to Sony and now Xbox Live is down due to them.
They tweeted: “Xbox Live #offline.” No other group has taken responsibility for the attack yet.
This is surprising since Xbox Live usually has solid infrastructure and can mitigate many types of attacks. This goes to show that it is really impossible to do anything against persistent hackers.
Hopefully, the service goes online soon. You may be experience intermittent connection to the service.
We will keep you updated if Microsoft issues a statement.
