Lizard Squad, a hacker group, has been pretty busy over Christmas. First it knocked down PlayStation Network and Xbox Live, bringing online gaming on PlayStation and Xbox consoles to a standstill, and then set its sights on an anonymity network called Tor. Lizard Squad shifted its focus over the weekend, saying that it would “no longer attack” gaming services, and instead go after Tor with a zero-day exploit. Simply put, a zero-day exploit is one that leverages an unknown vulnerability.
Sledgehammer Games, also known as the folks behind Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, have announced a new game mode for this title. The team-based mode is called One Shot and it features the Mors Railgun Sniper. Moreover, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is also getting Double XP over this weekend while gamers play in the new mode.
