    A hacker group known by the moniker Lizard Squad attacked several of the biggest online gaming services on the planet.

    The series of events would include a bomb threat that quickly gained the attention of the FBI. It appears Lizard Squad isn’t done yet.

    Twitch is the latest target of Lizard Squad.

    Since an hour ago all of its servers have been down, making it impossible for users to stream or watch live gameplay.

    Presumably, this is a well-coordinated DDoS attack, and one unlike anything Twitch has ever seen before.

    Here are the latest tweets by the hacker group’s Twitter account.

    Our Lizards are really slackin lately, brb while we fix a problem. Hopefully we’ll see some fireworks in a few hours.

    @Twitch LIZARD SQUAD ON YA FOREHEAD

    Twitch is a source of income, and in some cases the livelihood, for many streamers who share their interest in video games with the world. To them, this is no laughing matter.

    The charges are continuing to stack for whoever is behind these internet attacks. If they are caught, and if history tells us anything they should, they are going to face at least five years of prison for Sunday’s bomb threat alone.
