Two things:

1. I'm all for not giving these hacker twerps any attention. The only reason they do any of this is for attention. 2. Sadly, as I have to post news and it's New Year's Eve, there isn't much else to talk about.

You've probably already heard that the FBI is investigating Lizard Squad for the DDoS attacks on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live services over the holiday break. Well, it appears that investigation has already resulted in one arrest, as reported by The Daily Dot .

A search warrant was issued for 22-year-old Vinnie Omari of Twickenham, who said: "They took everything. Xbox One, phones, laptops, computer USBs, etc." A press release from The Thames Valley Police shows Omari was arrested on December 30 "on suspicion of fraud by false representation and Computer Misuse Act offenses." He's due in court in March 2015. Furthermore, another person associated with Lizard Squad, going by "Ryan," is under the FBI's microscope.

Lizard Squad's reaction:

That's a little different than the "yawn" reaction from before, isn't it? We've gone from pretending to be bored to defiant. What's next? Justification? Yeah, don't really care.

Enjoy the 10 to 25 years in prison good sir.

King Lizard? And he'll never go down? Well…yeah. Obviously. What you'll do is sellout your friends in order to get a getoutofjailfreecard. Definitely something a venomous loser would do.

Why would these guys hurt gamers? These hackers are truly bad guys.

They go after PSN and Live because both services are, relatively speaking, small fish. The smaller the network, the easier it is to DDoS, because fewer requests are needed to overwhelm the network.

If they tried the same kiddie-script tactics against a truly large network like Google or Yahoo or FB, we'd never even notice, because their tactics wouldn't even put a dent in networks of that size.

I don't understand why North Korea is still at the top of the FBI's suspect list unless there's a link between them and the lizard squad. Like maybe some sort of hacker bounty placed on Sony from N. Korea and the lizard squad wanted to collect on it.

It wasnt north korea who hacked sony pictures. It was a disgruntled employee that was fired in may. He made it look like it was n korea by tracing the hack to china.

That tweet does kinda show the fbi are on the right track. I interpret it as, k you got one of my guys, but the leader still stands.

Such young talents being put to waste. Shame.

My favorite thing about Lizard Squad has been their attitude that what they're doing is at all impressive or challenging, when in fact any botard can arrange a DDoS attack on relatively small networks like PSN or Live.

If they manage to take down Google or Facebook, I'll be impressed.
