Hacker Group DERP Attacks And Brings Down Live, Service Gets Restored Shortly Afterwards

After attacking many famous services like Steam, PSN and Origins and also targeting game related servers for Battlefield 4 and League of Legends; Hacker group DERP shifted their focus to Xbox Live and decided to take it down.

On twitter, DERP posted a tweet about bringing down Xbox Live and people on various gaming forums are already facing issues with being able to sign in Xbox Live or use its services. Over at reddit, people were also reporting issues in comments. According to this site, there seems to be a surge of reports relating to Xbox Live being down or facing issues.

While DERP might be successful it attacking Live, it didn’t remain down for too long and was restored back quickly.

It seems like they are targeting the login services for famous platforms and now it is Xbox Live’s turn. PSN also faced a similar attack earlier and it seems like even Microsoft’s service isn’t free from any such attack.
