The Lizard Squad hacking group has again targeted Microsoft’s online gaming service, taking it offline for hours.

Microsoft’s Xbox Live gaming system continued to experience partial service in North America on Monday morning, several hours after an outage apparently caused by a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack.

The hacking group, known as Lizard Squad, which drew attention for downing Xbox Live and Sony’s PlayStation Network (PSN) over Christmas, claimed responsibility for the outage, which reportedly began at around 4 a.m. GMT.
