he hacking crew that promised to launch DDoS attacks on the Pokemon GO servers on August 1 suffered a minor setback yesterday, after someone hacked their site, dumped the database, and shared it with data breach index service LeakedSource.
The hacking crew's moniker is PoodleCorp, being a relatively new unit on the cyber-crime scene, which has made a name for itself by defacing popular YouTube channels.
The group had already launched a successful DDoS attack on Pokemon GO servers on July 16 and annoyed much of the Pokemon GO fanbase.
Seeing the huge media attention they received from that attack, two days later, on July 18, the group promised to launch another DDoS attack on Pokemon GO, much bigger than the first one, but on August 1.
August 1 came and went. Pokemon GO players didn't report anything. However, today, PoodleCorp's name surfaced online again after LeakedSource announced they added details from PoodleCorp.org domain to their massive database of breached sites.
