In response to the news that Phantom Squad has threatened to take down XBox Live and PSN this Christmas using a DDoS attack, Igal Zeifman, senior digital strategist at Imperva have the following comments on it.

“Gaming companies should invest in mitigation solutions that provide on-demand scalability, increasing their resource pool when it’s needed the most. They should also be constantly aware of their relative weaknesses and, consequently, be proactive in their response to potential DDoS threats and predictable traffic peaks.

That said, it is up to gamers themselves to promote a significant paradigm shift in this new trend of DDoS attacks. One way to achieve that is to stop showering perpetrators with the attention they crave, which generally tends to be their sole motivation for launching an attack in the first place. Attackers shouldn’t be criticized or glorified — just ignore them. Otherwise they’ll keep coming back as long as we collectively continue to feed the trolls.”[/su_note]
