Horde of hackers attempting to shut down The War Z servers
For the past few days, the zombie MMORPG has been under siege from a different kind of menace: Hackers.
“Guys over the last few days we have been under attack by various forms of malicious attempts to shut down our servers. First we were hit with an attack that would rest our DNS IP so that you could not connect. This was solved a couple days ago early in the morning but took time to actually resolve worldwide once the fix went in,” said Kewk.
“This morning we are being hit, again, with a DDOS attack on our login server. We are implementing additional DDoS protection and hope to have this resolved ASAP. Unfortunately with these types of attacks it is very difficult to give a good time frame of when it will be resolved,” Kewk added.
Since the posting, The War Z team has mobilized its IT wizards to shore up the game’s hacking defenses and fix code bugs that are allowing the hackers into the system. Players have also been given tips on how to cope with connection issues resulting from the hacking attempts, including flushing the DNS.
