It probably won't amount to much but at least there's an investigation.

According to a VentureBeat report , hacker group Lizard Squad is officially under investigation for the DDoS attacks that took the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live offline over the Christmas holiday.

As a spokesperson said:

The FBI is investigating the matter. Given the pending nature of the case, we cannot comment further."

DDoS attacks are definitely illegal if they cause a certain amount of chaos, and that's pretty much what happened. Most gamers weren't able to get online or access any digital services from the PlayStation and Xbox servers, and problems still persist for the PSN. As for Lizard Squad, they apparently don't care:

Funny. That's my response whenever such groups pull these stunts.

I play most of my games offline but I will tell you one of thing… I leave things up to karma.

They did it for the "lulz"? When XYZ happens to them or someone they care about there won't be any lulz for sure.

When they're facing jail time and a fine they're going to care.

Yeah well this surely makes it like we care for sure. It's good the FBI is investigating, but in the meantime we shouldn't even placate to their childish crap and even give them articles or time. I'm sure they relish in this infamy.

Why Twitter doesn't ban these losers is beyond me. Half of their time on Twitter they're begging for followers. I can't wait to see these tools in cuffs.

They'd feel real funny if a real hacker crashes n destroys their whole system or maybe one of these COD kids will SWAT them

Don't breed, if some poor woman let you have an accident before she ran off on you, smother them with a pillow, save the world some trouble.
