This is definitely not a Christmas story you want to hear at this time of the year. Yet, we have no other choice than to bring this one up. There was an unfortunate and unwanted Christmas break for the gamers on both Sony PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. Microsoft and Sony have already apologized.
On the other hand, the Lizard Squad let us know that they are responsible for these attacks. There is no way, who has volunteered to save the day for gamers. The notorious Kim Dotcom has reached one of the most unusual deals in the entire cyber history. The Xbox and the PSN are safe and sound thanks to him.
So, what happened? Well, for what is worth, Kim has promised a free service of his brand new Mega server thing to the Lizard guys. In return, this group will forget about the Microsoft and Sony PlayStation gaming servers for a while or for good. That is not quite sure. The problem is solved. For now.
In the meantime, Sony has offered to give additional five days to the existing accounts to ease the pain. Who knows, maybe this is the fresh start of Kim Dotcom as the most unusual consultant in the matters of the cyber security. What can we say? Nothing but the very best for him and troubled Sony.
