The Lizard Squad hackers’ group has claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s outage on Facebook and Instagram. Facebook officials, however, denied it was a hack attack, saying it occurred after they introduced a change affecting configuration systems.
“Facebook, Instagram, Tinder, AIM, Hipchat #offline #LizardSquad,” the group tweeted.
The networking sites were unavailable from [06:00] GMT for about 40-60 minutes.
The map was released on social media showing the alleged DDOS attack worldwide. The main targets are the US, Russia, Taiwan and the Netherlands. The origins of the hack are found in the US, China and the Netherlands.
