This morning the group started warmup attacks on the EA network, taking it down for 3 hours. The attacks were severe enough, to take down the network completely, and had EA issue apologies on its Twitter account. Phantom Squad is now carrying out DDoS attacks on PSN. Users started reporting outages in small areas around the world. Attacks are still in their beginning.
