Someone in an Xbox party booted me off my Xbox

Posted 1 Month ago by Xbox_Fan

How did he manage this? How can he mess with people's wifi's through an Xbox One Party?

Have any of you experienced this before?

He probably got your IP and then performed a DDOS attack which shut your internet off. Googling this issue turn up alot of similar stories.

Power Cycle your router which should give you a new IP and block all communications with whomever did it.

Thanks for the advice

How exactly did he manage to do it though? Is it simple or complicated?

He could have used any number of tools or techniques that are free and easy to use. Here is a guy showing how to boot someone offline using a iphone without even needing an IP:

Does it matter if your Xbox One has a static IP or a dynamic IP?
