Group of hackers named 'Poodlecorp' has threatened to take the popular game Pokémon Go server offline on August 1st.
“We take the servers offline because it is popular right now and nobody can stop us,”@xotehpoodle (a member of the Poodlecorp group) said. “We do it because we can, nobody can stop us and we just like to cause chaos. We chose August 1 so we have time to relax and not care about doing anything.”The group plans to take the servers down for 20-plus hours “basically an entire day” using the same method they’ve used on other attacks Poodlecorp has laid claim to a massive botnet consisting of 600,000 devices ranging from DVRs to dedicated servers.
This is not the first time that hackers are targeting this popular game, Pokemongo. Earlier this week also cyber crooks attacked Pplemon Go server with the DDoS attacks.
