The little-known Lizard Squad hacker group recently disrupted online servers of Destiny and Call of Duty: Ghosts, as the group continues to rack up victims. This is more troubling for Destiny, one of the most anticipated game launches of the year, as it was only released on Sept. 9 and has a large following. Lizard Squad has been relatively dormant the past few weeks, staying out of the headlines as it prepared distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks against Destiny and CoD: Ghosts servers.




Following its initial introduction to the world, the group received a large amount of criticism from gamers, game industry officials, and fellow hackers. After the group issued a fake bomb threat against an American Airlines flight carrying a Sony executive, many wondered how much longer the group would be able to operate.
