The group of hackers who goes by the name of Phantom Squad already warned Sony and Microsoft about their attack on Xbox Live and PSN. The hacker group claims that they will shutdown both networks on Christmas and this process will continue for a week. Recently, Kim Dotcom tweeted on his official twitter account that if these hackers shut down the networks then the gamers will be badly pissed. Phantom Squad already said, with this attack they want to create awareness regarding the state of low level of securities of these big companies and want to show the world that their is no cyber security and if they didn’t apply the necessary security measures then its completely Sony and Microsoft’s fault.
Earlier today, Anonymous the most popular hackers group on their official twitter account supported their cause and said if these networks goes down, then Microsoft and Sony are to blame. These corporations should have applied the sufficient DDoS protection measures.
If PSN or Xbox live goes down, Microsoft and Sony are the blame. You would expect these corporations to have sufficient DDoS protection.

A group of “hackers” called the “Phantom Squad” is going to take down PSN and XBL on Christmas day, and keep them down for 1 week. Why? :/
