Notorious Internet trolls LizardSquad have claimed responsibility for distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks on Destiny and Call of Duty: Ghosts over the weekend.

Players were kicked from the games, and received the error message "Cattle".

Video game website The Escapist was also the subject of a DDoS attack over the weekend. General manager Alexander Macris said a forum thread on the GamerGate controversy appeared to have been targeted.

In August, LizardSquad claimed responsibility for DDoS attacks against the PlayStation Network. It also issued a bomb threat against a flight carrying Sony Online president John Smedley.

The FBI's investigation into the false bomb threat is ongoing.
