[Update] The group has now targeted League of Legends, bringing down the login servers and (apparently inadvertently) the Web site. The group says this "concludes" today's DDOS attacks, but we'll keep an eye out for any more shenanigans.
[Original Story] Hot off the heels of yesterday's Bethesda attacks, hacker group LulzSec has targeted more online games and even a gaming site. The group has claimed responsibility for attacks today against EVE Online, Minecraft, and gaming site The Escapist.
EVE Online was the apparent victim of a DDOS attack, which wiped out both the login server and the Web site. As of the time of writing, both are still unavailable. Minecraft, meanwhile, is back online according to creator Markus Persson (aka "Notch"). The Escapist is currently still down with a 403 error.
Of course, as services are restored it's smart to change your passwords for the affected sites, along with any other sites that you use similar login credentials for. LulzSec is already hinting at another attack in the works, so we'll update as new developments occur.
