Lizard Squad “claims responsibility” for Facebook, Instagram and Tinder outage



The number of sites interpreting this as claiming responsibility is staggering and there are many big names that have taken it as such.

Lizard Squad’s Twitter feed quickly filled up with shouts of praise and adulation, but it’s misplaced. There is precisely zero evidence to suggest that Lizard Squad took down Facebook. Perhaps the tweet was deliberately ambiguous
the group can easily say they have not claimed responsibility but it’s almost funny the number of “Lizard Squad did it!” headlines are out there. Ignore them.

Facebook Denies ‘Lizard Squad’ Hacking Claim.

Meanwhile the website of Lizard Squad seems to be down. and Facebook Denies the hack.

Facebook Inc. on Tuesday denied being the victim of a hacking attack and said its site and photo-sharing app Instagram had suffered an outage after it introduced a configuration change.

The disruption “was not the result of a third party attack but instead occurred after we introduced a change that affected our configuration systems,” a Facebook spokeswoman told The Wall Street Journal. “We moved quickly to fix the problem, and both services are back to 100% for everyone.”

Who is right?

Who is to blame? It seems that Facebook crashed its own servers.
