Hammerpoint Interactive’s War Z Servers Are Under DDOS Attack!
Not only are they being hacked by unknown assailants but all attempts have been directed at shutting down the game’s servers, messing with the DNS to stop players from connecting. Also Earlier today Hammerpoint’s login server were affected by a DDoS attack.
What is a DDoS?Wikipedia states : This as a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS). This occurs when multiple systems flood the bandwidth or resources of a targeted system, usually one or more web servers. These systems are compromised by attackers using a variety of methods.
Bowman has stated that the company is currently beefing up their War Z DDoS protection but that there is no word as to when the issue will be resolved.
Given last year’s rampant attacks on a number of companies it is not surprising to see this occur, but a person has to wonder whether these attacks are from a disgruntled buyer of the game.
I am curious to hear what the community has to say and if you missed out on last week’s story where The War Z had their trademark suspended, make sure to check it out!
