Those who connected to the PlayStation Network during the hacker attack were unable to access the service. They were greeted by a message that read “Page Not Found! It’s not you. It’s the Internet’s fault,” reports Forbes.

Lizard Squad is the hacker group that has claimed responsibility for the attack on the PlayStation Network. The group said it was behind the attack in a Twitter (TWTR) post. It’s website is based in Russia, Forbes notes.

The PlayStation Network isn’t the only gaming service to be the target of a Lizard Squad attack. Last week Mircosoft’s (MSFT) saw its Xbox Live service knocked out from a DDOS attack that the group claimed to be behind. The group has also targeted several of Electronic Arts’ (EA) games.

SNE shares were down 3% as of Monday afternoon.
