Six people busted for using Lizard Squad's custom DDoS tool

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Hacking & Security | Posted: 49 mins ago

Six teenagers have been arrested, and are now out on bail, suspected of using the Lizard Squad's Lizard Stresser distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack tool, according to the UK National Crime Agency. The arrests were part of "Operation Vivarium," and included coordination between the NCA and several police agencies.

The arrested men include one 15-year-old, a 16-yearold, one 17-year-old, and three 18-year-olds. Earlier in the year, officials arrested two other teenagers for allegedly using the Lizard Stresser.

 

"By paying a comparatively small fee, tools like Lizard Stresser can cripple businesses financially and deprive people of access to important information and public services," said Tony Adams, senior operations manager of the NCA national cybercrime unit.

Square Enix improvised Final Fantasy 7's development, says Nomura

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 1 hour, 18 mins ago

With the Final Fantasy 7 Remake on the way, legendary Square Enix alum Tetsuya Nomura takes us back to the late 90's to discuss how one of the most iconic juggernauts in video game history was made.

 

square-enix-improvised-final-fantasy-7s-development-nomura_2

 

Final Fantasy 7 was a pivotal moment in history for Square Enix and gaming as a whole: the game rode the mighty wave set forth by the original PlayStation, ushering in a new era of 3D visuals that breathed true life into the game via cinematics, polygons, and characters with real heart (you teared up during Aerith's infamous scene, admit it).

 

"The original game was the first time in Final Fantasy that all of the creation of characters and environments was rendered in 3D," Nomura said in an interview with PlayStation Magazine. "It was a time of big changes when we went from sprites to something more lifelike and in 3D, and it was just such an iconic moment. And we just packed so much playable content for players to experience, I feel that maybe that's one of the great reasons that that game had such an impact on fans. We were able to create a new game-playing experience. And on top of that, the characters. Not only the transition of 2D to 3D polygons, just that their personalities were more drawn out, they were more human and you can attach emotionally to those characters."

It turns out that many people aren't afraid of fallout from Ashley Madison's high-profile data breach, with "hundreds of thousands" of new members reportedly signing up for the site in the past week. In addition, 87,596 women also signed up for the infidelity website, according to Avid Life officials.

"Last week alone, women sent more than 2.8 million messages within our platform," according to Avid Life Media.

 

"Recent media reports predicting the imminent demise of Ashley Madison are greatly exaggerated. Despite having our business and customers attacked, we are growing." However, CEO Noel Biderman stepped down as head of the company, and additional shakeups are possible - though it looks like a bit of notoriety could be helping the website.
