But for system administrators at a handful of gaming companies, Tuesday, June 14 was a nightmare: the day their websites went down under an online attack. LulzSec took down systems at the Escapist, Eve Online, Minecraft and League of Legends Tuesday during a three-hour long distributed denial-of-service rampage that left gamers annoyed and the Lulz hackers crowing. "Welcome to #TitanicTakeoverTuesday where everyone is laughing at crybabies getting Lulz Cannoned!" the hacking group said during one of its many Twitter messages documenting the online assault.
