A group of hackers calling themselves DERP have been bringing down some of the top game servers today. By means of DDoS attacks, they have been crashing game servers and websites including Electronic Arts’ EA.com website for a short while.
Apparently, all the attacks are mainly focused on a game streamer, PhantomL0rd, and crashing the games he usually streams. At the time of writing, police have arrived and swept PhantomL0rd’s place as posted on his Facebook Page.
