World Of Warcraft Classic Servers Are Back Online After A Wave Of DDoS Attacks2019-09-10 09:39:45
Last night, the US World of Warcraft Classic server suffered a number of DDoS attacks. Blizzard's North American customer support team reports that the server is now back online and running stable.
According to BTS Kotaku, the wave of DDoS attacks began at 3pm yesterday and a Twitter account, UkDrillas, claimed responsibility. The twitter account was alerted 30 minutes before each attack, but has since been suspended and the tweet deleted. It has not been confirmed whether twitter accounts were actually responsible for the DDoS attack.
At the time of the attack, Blizzard confirmed the problems via Twitter, explaining that it was actively working to prevent damage. "Some online services continue to be impacted by a series of DDoS attacks which are resulting in high latency and disconnections," the tweet says. "These disruption effects have been felt by a portion of our players, impacting their gaming experience. Thank you again for your continued patience."
