Xbox has reportedly gone offline with a hacker group called @occupythemob.

This is not the first time that Xbox has been subject to hacking and DDOS attacks with Lizard Squad taking them offline on Christmas Day.

DDOS attacks are favourited by hacking group because it overloads a server until it grinds to a halt.

Update: It has been confirmed that Xbox went offline due to a technical glitch and not as a result of hackers.
