Pokemon Go crashes and hackers claim responsibility

Nintendo’s share price went berserk in the week following the release of Pokémon Go. Sadly, it looks like there is something else that has been bothering players: server crashes. The company’s servers have crashed several times due to the sheer number of its players.

Police in Darwin, Australia, also issued a message to users on Facebook, asking them to refrain from entering the city’s police station, which had been marked as a PokeStop in the game.

The app is the newest version of a video game originally released for the Game Boy in 1996 that revolved around catching “Pocket Monsters”, or Pokemon, and training them to fight other Pokemon. One can uninstall the app manually by going to their phone’s application manager. Seems like Team Rocket is up in full force.

As the OurMine member told TechCrunch: “We don’t want other hackers to attack their servers, so we should protect their servers”.

Another user said: “So far my vehicle has failed it’s MOT then Kante leaves us for Chelsea and now Pokemon Go won’t sign me in!”

Apart from all of the interesting things that you have already done with Pokemon GO, it has already opened up a sphere of business that no one would have imagined. They hack games like The Division to give themselves godly advantages.

According to sources, locating China’s key military installations will be easy wit Pokemon Go China entry as tracking areas where access curbs are enforced in capturing Pokemon characters will identify the military bases. That hacking group took down the servers that power PlayStation and Xbox, making players unable to get online – with hackers doing so using similar techniques and also with the aim of promoting their own servers. What a great way to teach someone something. Unorthodox you say? I say it’s edgy. A group called PoodleCorp claimed responsibility.
