Minecraft Servers down warning from LizardSquad

By Alan Ng - Aug 27, 2014

Another day and it looks like LizardSquad are still trying to attack gamers by going after the most popular gaming products and services. We have a heads-up now to all Minecraft players, as some Minecraft servers may be down today with warning from the group responsible.

LizardSquad has already managed to bring down Sony’s PSN network, just to give you an idea of the seriousness of this. We told you earlier about the group’s Twitter page seemingly being taken down, but at the time of writing it’s back up and now they are targeting poor old Minecraft players.

Some Tweets released by the group just minutes ago reveals that they are going after some Minecraft servers and are apparently having success already with some Minecraft servers crashing.

Having said that, we can see at the ‘Is Minecraft down’ server status website that everything is still up and running fine for the moment, so don’t be too worried for the time being.

We can also see no activity from the Minecraft status Twitter account which usually reports on any outages, so for now it appears that LizardSquad haven’t been able to bring Minecraft down on a widespread scale.

Are you having any problems getting into Minecraft servers at the moment? Let us know your thoughts on this group and the fact that they are now targeting Minecraft.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus.

    Dose anyone have any minecraft servers that don’t have a lot of people on it because they haven’t shared it with anyone

    One of the reasons psn shouldn’t be free no one is going to pay for a membership just to mess up the services they payed for

    I cannot believe Twitter are giving these clowns oxygen. I hope Twitter is cooperating with the FBI and/or CIA. If these people are not in the US, then an Osama-styled strike needs to be ordered. It is a national security issue as they are attacking US (and others icluding US allies) interests. It is times like this we need the Republicans in the White House.

      You’re aware that Sony is not a US company, and is based in Japan. You’re aware that these people have not attacked any US government affiliates. I don’t condone their actions, but I don’t see how a different party in the white house would make any difference that these people are doing this. It’s not a government priority to stop some punk kids from messing with different game’s servers.

        Are you aware that the CEO that was targeted by the terrorists was a US citizen and the plane that they said contained explosives was in US air space. Also, do you think that a GOVERNMENT installation needs to be involved for it to be an attack on US interests? And of course the party matters. I love Obama, but in terms of foreign policy he is indecisive and weak. Even Putin laughs at him. The Republicans have a lot of negatives, but I think most agree that they are stronger on National Security. DDoS attacks are a federal crime for a reason – and so they should be. What about when they do the same to important infrastrcuture that costs lives, not just tens of millions of dollars like the last attack? Should we wait for another 9/11 before we act?
