Yes, you to read it right Hackers to bring down Pokemon Go on 1st August with DDoS attack. Poodlecrop has threatened the most popular app from past few week “Pokemon Go” to bring down their server by distributed denial of service. Moreover the company are still facing the issue to keep the server up and healthy.
“We take the servers offline because it is popular right now and nobody can stop us,” @xotehpoodle (a member of the Poodlecorp group) said. “We do it because we can, nobody can stop us and we just like to cause chaos. We chose August 1 so we have time to relax and not care about doing anything.”

They also mentioned to b-ring down the app for 20 hours which is almost an hours. Which is almost 1 day full. Using the same method they’ve used on other attacks Poodlecorp has laid claim to — a massive botnet consisting of 600,000 devices ranging from DVRs to dedicated.
Last Saturday the game went offline and servers were unavailable which was due to same attack there Poodlecrop has also claims responsibility for hacking various YouTubers and the League of legends Servers using the tool Botnet.
Poodlecorp, of course, isn’t the first group of hackers that have made big claims and but the Twitter account warns that this time it’s different because they made a promise.
Now the question is why they want to bring down the servers rather than reporting to the company. It is digital world and they can do.
Even I love this game and still haven’t got Pikachu, there are many hacks and tricks that can help you find and win easy battle. If those things come out the real fun will be eliminated.
Let us wait and watch will Hackers to bring down Pokemon Go on 1st August? I wish “NO”.
