Hacker group LulzSec has announced it has attacked EVE Online’s Tranquility server, Minecraft’s multiplayer services, Riot Game’s League of Legends servers, and the Escapist Magazine’s website. The four distributed denial-of-service attacks appear to have been successful, as EVE Online is still down. You can read CCP Games’ official statement on the attack after the break!

Perhaps they are upset that DUST 514 is a PlayStation 3 exclusive?

CCP Games Official Statement

At 17:00 GMT today, CCP became aware of a distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS) attack against the EVE Online cluster and web servers.

Immediately, these services were taken offline. As an added precaution, all of CCP’s infrastructure was disconnected from the public Internet.

The CCP Security team is conducting a thorough investigation to determine exactly what happened and how, what the possible impact may be and, first and foremost, assuring that any personal information of our customers remains secure.

More information will be released as it’s available.
