Various statements posted by self-described Lizard Squad members on their open online chat forum — chat.— suggest that these misguided individuals launched the attack for no other reason than because they thought it would be amusing to annoy and disappoint people who received new Xbox and Playstation consoles as holiday gifts.
Such assaults, known as distributed denial-of-service (DDo S) attacks — harness the Internet connectivity of many hacked or misconfigured systems so that those systems are forced to simultaneously flood a target network with junk internet traffic.

In this study, college students responded, in person and online, to questions about their online activities and closest friends in three contexts: social networking sites, instant messaging, and face-to-face.
Results showed that participants often used the Internet, especially social networking sites, to connect and reconnect with friends and family members.
Social networking sites (e.g., My Space and Facebook) are popular online communication forms among adolescents and emerging adults.
Yet little is known about young people's activities on these sites and how their networks of “friends” relate to their other online (e.g., instant messaging) and offline networks.
Information from this survey is relevant to concerns about young people's life online.Natalia Waechter thanks the Austrian Ministry of Science for financial support.
