Pokemon Go Servers are continuously attacked by a hacker group called OurMine. OurMine has spent the past several hours hitting Pokemon Go’s login servers with a distributed denial of service attack. Because of their attacks some players frustrated and unable to log in to the game. The hacker group said it would not stop the attack until representatives from Pokemon Go contacted them.
The group wrote: “No one will be able to play this game till Pokemon Go contact us on our website to teach them how to protect it!”
OurMine Hacking Group: OurMine is group of three hackers, who has made a name for itself by hacking the Twitter accounts of tech leaders and celebrities. The group usually uses the opportunity to advertise its ‘security services.’ In recent weeks, the group has gained access to Sundar Pichai and Jack Dorsey’s accounts by breaking into linked accounts and using those accounts to post to Twitter.
This group is trying to spread the word about security. The group insists that it’s just promoting stronger security. There charges are from $30 – $5000 for its services.
“We don’t want other hackers attack their servers, so we should protect their servers,” the OurMine member explained.
