PostSubject: Pair Claim To Have Attacked Steam's Servers   Sat Jan 04, 2014 12:17 am



Just as one group is claiming to have brought down many of EA's servers, another is boasting of having taken down much of Valve's mighty Steam network.2P

A pair of Twitter users are claiming to be behind a series of DDoS attacks that, if they're the actual cause of disruption, have rendered Steam's marketplace and community services patchy (or indeed inaccessible) for much of the day.P



I know, it sounds a little much, but the fact is that Steam's store and community features have been crippled for much of the evening (though there have been brief windows of availability).P

@LARCENY_ posted an image earlier of Low Orbit Ion Cannon, a DDoS tool, writing "What we are hitting with".P



There's no mention of planned maintenance from Steam's Twitter page.P

With a dash or irony, even the normally-useful "Is Steam Down" page was down for a while.P

We've contacted Valve for comment, and will update if we hear back.

I hate DDosser's and hackers more than anything in this world.

And my and some friends were experiencing huge lag spikes.
