All you need is an ip address and you can take the server down ddos is really easy wouldn't really call it a hack just someone wanted to take a network down.
Wrong. One requires advanced gadgets.

well you need a botnet but i figured that was a given.
edit: access to a botnet doesn't really need to be yours i suppose.

Yes. The hardest part would be to get legitimate ip addresses of Microsoft's server archetecture for xbox live. Once they had that though, it doesn't matter what you try because they will continue to spam themselves with packet requests in the largest size possible. Since they're ip spoofed, that spam will actually go to the source of the ip address.
The largest DDoS attack (at the time. a larger attack used a similar method, just with NTP instead) used this exact method and was done by one person with a laptop. It resulted in a 300 gbps attack. People need to stop thinking in antiquated terms with regard to DDoS. Botnets are difficult to create and time consuming as hell.
The first one is scary because it was done with one person on one server.
The second one is scary because it demonstrates that hackers are capable and willing to provide 100 gbps bandwidth to denying service. When combined with the first article, you have a method of attack that some DDoS prevention companies don't think they can stop.

You. He didn't exempt XBox, nor did he really praise Microsoft. As close as he's come to it is saying that MS has more data centers than Sony. He's still targeting XBL:
A pessimist will tell you the glass is half empty. An optimist will tell you the glass is half full. An engineer will tell you that the glass is over-sized.
LOL famedgod, what a tool. Nerds are just the worst. So embarrassing. Derp im seeking attention in my worthless life so im gonna flex real hard through this keyboard!
Well now they or some other clowngroup is targeting XboxLive
Hope they get bored soon.
Leave gamers out of that garbage
