Poodlecorp DDOS takes EA, Blizzard servers down

We are hearing about some unfortunate news now, in relations to a possible reason why Battlefield 1 and also WoW Legion servers have been down recently with unexpected maintenance.

Another hacking group has entered the scene, by the name of Poodlecorp who are following on in the footsteps of Lizardsquad in trying to gain attention via social media by launching DDOS attacks against popular games.

Blizzard recently celebrated the launch of Legion for World of Warcraft, while EA has just opened up beta testing for Battlefield 1. According to a recent Tweet from Poodlecorp though, they don’t want you to have fun.


Obviously, we can’t say if the claims are true or not but we do know that Battlefield 1 servers have been offline for a prolonged period of time.

Did a WoW DDOS really happen again with Blizzard CS taking a pounding as a result? Give us your thoughts on this on whether you believe the rumors.
