Lizard Squad has now become famous for its distributed denial of service or DDoS attacks on popular online gaming services like PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. The most recent attack was over Christmas when both services were knocked down by a couple of days by simply flooding the servers with artificial traffic. That attack may very well have been a marketing ploy for Lizard Squad’s new DDoS tool which for a small price per month lets anyone launch similar attacks themselves.
For pretty obvious reasons we’re not pointing you towards the Lizard Stresser DDoS tool which can be used to bring down an online service, or a website for that matter, through a distributed denial of service attack.
As per the official introduction page “this booter is famous for taking down some of the world’s largest gaming networks,” clearly Lizard Squad is highlighting its achievements when trying to sell Lizard Stresser. Budding cyberattackers can choose from eight available packages that start from $5.99 per month, this takes down a website for 100 seconds, to the most expensive package that costs $129.99 per month and promises to take down a site for more than eight hours.
There’s even a referral system that gives 10 percent of whatever money the user’s referrals spend. Currently only Bitcoin is being accepted for payments but Lizard Squad says that PayPal will be supported “soon.”
