Pokemon Go DDoS Attacks Postponed As PoodleCorp Botnet Suffers Security Breach

An anonymous reader writes from a report via Softpedia: “The hacking crew [PoodleCorp] that promised to launch DDoS attacks on the Pokemon GO servers on August 1 suffered a major setback, after someone hacked their site, dumped the database, and shared it with data breach index service LeakedSource,” reports Softpedia. “PoodleCorp responded to LeakedSource’s announcement with what they knew best, a DDoS attack.” When that happened, LeakedSource started looking at the leaked data and discovered full names for three of PoodleCorp’s members, saying they intend to share it with authorities. Soon after, PoodleCorp stopped the DDoS against LeakedSource and went to annoy Blizzard gamers. “It’s a terrible idea to attack a business that knows something about virtually everybody,” a LeakedSource spokesperson said.
