According to a CNET report, a hacker group which calls itself ‘DerpTrolling’ has recently claimed responsibility for a series of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks on game servers for Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft online RPG.
The DDoS attack which the DerpTrolling hacker group launched on the Warcraft servers crippled the servers during the launch weekend of the Warlords of Draenor game. Claiming responsibility for the attack, DerpTrolling hackers have disclosed that they had managed to seize a massive amount of user data.
According to the hacking group, the user data which has been seized as a result of the attack on Warcraft servers includes login details, password, email, and credit card information from PlayStation Network accounts as well as 2K accounts.
In an elaboration of user data to which it has gained access, the DerpTrolling hacker group said in a statement to CNET: “We have 800,000 from 2K and 500,000 credit card data.”
The group further declared that it has approximately “2 million Comcast accounts, 620,000 Twitter accounts, 1.2 million credentials belonging to the CIA domain, 200,000 Windows Live accounts, 3 million Facebook, 1.7 million EA origins accounts, etc.”
Asserting that it has altogether seized nearly 7 million usernames and passwords from its raids, the hacker group has somewhat substantiated its claim by releasing a partial list of the hacked accounts as evidence.
