Why Steam Went Down Yesterday?

Steam went down

So Winter Sales just kicked in 2 days ago and yesterday Steam was down on a global scale. Though it came back online in a couple of hours but what was the reason behind it, which lead it to go down on a Global scale?

Well if you heard the name Lizard Squad then you probably know who they are. Well if you don’t then let me tell you that Lizard Squad is a group of hackers that has stuck many online services and have taken them down in the past.

And it applies same for yesterday, a group of Lizard Squad took down Steam but it was restored. Over the past years, Lizard Squad has done the same by attempting to take down various sites during periods of high traffic loads. The list includes Steam, PlayStation Network, Twitter and even Xbox Live.
