New Lulzsec Attacks On WoW, Newerth, Eve

Yesterday's denial of service attacks on Minecraft, Eve Online and League of Legends do not appear to be the end of hacker collective Lulzsec's attempts to force online games offline. Heroes of Newerth's login server was named a victim around an hour ago, shortly followed by the group declaring its intention to target Eve again tonight. That may of course be a double-bluff, but keep it in mind if you're intending to play tonight.

Then, just moments ago, they stated that they were now rerouting calls to their 'requests' phone number to World of Warcraft's customer support line. They claim their line, alleged by some to be a premium rate number, receives between 5 and 20 calls a second at present. Whether this signals an impending attack on WoW itself remains to be seen, but the group currently appear to be focusing efforts on phone rerouting.
