Three weeks later, the Christmas DDoS attacks against the popular Xbox and Playstation gaming platforms continues to generate headlines. Over the weekend, the BBC reported,
A UK man has been arrested as part of an investigation into denial-of-service attacks on Sony Playstation and Xbox systems over Christmas.
The 18-year-old was arrested at an address in Southport, near Liverpool.
He is accused of unauthorised access to computer material and knowingly providing false information to law enforcement agencies in the US.
The investigation was a joint operation between UK cybercrime units and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Given the continued interest in this story, we decided to speak with someone on the front lines of this attack. An 11 year old boy who got an Xbox for Christmas. Enjoy.
