Wondering why you couldn’t “catch ‘em all” Sunday? The hacking collective OurMine has claimed credit for attacking the “Pokemon Go” servers. Hackers reportedly hit “Pokemon Go” login servers with a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack on Sunday that left players frustrated and unable to log in to the game. The group, whose IP address has reportedly been tracked to Saudi Arabia, posted a statement on their website saying, “No one will be able to play this game till ‘Pokemon Go’ contact us on our website to teach them how to protect it.” The statement was posted prior to the attack.
