The “PhantomSquad” Skids are at it again.

Phantom Squad and Poodle Corp are again attacking gaming communities, this time taking steam offline for a couple of hours.  Why?  Apparently because they want more followers on Twitter.

Get that tweet to 200 rt and likes for steam to be back up !! (not this tweet the steam offline tweet)

Pretty pathetic if you ask me.  Launching a large scale DDoS attack at major gaming communities for retweets is pretty low, and it also says something about how easy it is to build a botnet large enough to cripple huge infrastructures.
