Phantom Squad, a new group of hackers, threatens to ruin Christmas for Xbox and PlayStation gamers.
Last year, Lizard Squad was every console gamer’s Grinch, where the group took down Xbox Live and PSN servers via a DDoS attack. The attack overloaded servers and denied entry for all users. The Lizard Squad attack lasted for 3 days and gamers couldn’t get online to play their new systems or games.

This year, Phantom Squad wants to make a new Christmas tradition of attacking Xbox and PS4 servers. Let’s hope both Microsoft and Sony learned from last year’s terrible experience and do what it takes to prevent another attack.
