Microsoft’s finest minds couldn’t stop them and the thousands of pounds being lost every hour by Sony made not a jot of difference. However, when Kim Dotcom realised he couldn’t play his video games, that was too much.
An attack that brought down the online networks of the world’s two biggest games consoles appeared to have been brought to an end last night only after the eccentric internet entrepreneur bribed the hackers involved and, in his words, performed a “Christmas miracle”. Then he went back to playing online games on his Xbox.
Millions of gamers, including Mr Dotcom, who was born Kim Schmitz, found themselves unable to use their consoles on Christmas Day and Boxing Day after a group of hackers calling themselves the Lizard Squad apparently launched an attack on Microsoft and Sony, crashing the Xbox and Playstation networks.
Because many games require online authentication before they can be used, the attack meant that people around the world were unable to use their Christmas presents.
However, it appeared to have been lifted yesterday when Mr Dotcom, whose Megaupload website was closed by the US department of justice for facilitating piracy, offered the hackers 3,000 free credits for his latest business Megaprivacy — a service that offers encrypted cloud storage.
