Hackers booting people off of Xbox Live

Post by Che Marungo on Fri Feb 20, 2009 12:11 pm



Denial-of-service attacks are nothing new on the web, but the BBC reports that it's becoming an increasingly large problem on Xbox Live, where hackers are using the attacks to kick other players out of games. Not to get too technical, but the DoS attack basically works like this: Angry data takes your pipes from fat to skinny, so the pictures of aliens getting shot and the sounds of guns firing at said aliens can't get through them. Confusing for the common man, we know, but that's why we went to blogging college.

Microsoft says that it's investigating the attacks. Have any of you been victims?
