Servers offline from a DDOS attack.

Recommended Posts

I find it odd that a DDoS attack would happen right after a major update.  Wouldn't it be more likely that people are using the update as a reason to come back to the game, which could result in a DDoS-like sharp increase in traffic?

 

Not on a level that would cause a hosting company to quarantine a server cluster from a network. I work for a company that provides hosting and normally we inquire about increased traffic before cutting someone off. Also a ddos level attack is very noticeably different from an influx of players.

And here i decided to log on again after some time. Ha. Timing.

 

What idiot does ddos attacks to a game like wurm anyways, there is no competition to lure people to and generally i cannot imagine anyone who could profit from this.

So the only conclusion left is that some sexually confused person is jerking off to our angry posts here. Ohwell...whatever gives you joy i guess...

 

It was definitely not a random hit.....so gotta be someone with massive recent conflict in the game.

The one thing this makes me realize is how much I love this stupid game... I am actually pissed off that I can't play... it's been a long, long time since I cared enough about a game to have a service outage generate that kind of feel.


 


So... for what it's worth, thanks Devs/Community... I guess I can go read the wiki or something.

Unreal! I thought this was some kind of a joke when I saw a link to this in another locked post. Wasn't there a dos attack with the last large update as well? Would have thought steps would have been taken to prevent this in the future after that experience. Anyway, good to hear that Rolf & Co are attempting to arrange hosting services in Germany, as those persons have a reputation of being excellent in advancing technology and structuring of processes. Hopefully servers will be moved there soon.


 


Sounds like some disgruntled former Wurm contributor taking out their frustrations. Too bad they are given some affirmation with this success. Matters little in the scheme of things though since there are plenty of other options online to keep one occupied in the interim.

yeah no doubt noticeable. Increased traffic doesn't effect things that badly, at worst case it causes lag and that's about it.

Wurm is that great of a game....it's a real shame people do this to try and make it look bad, Excellent community and great GM's/devs who do everything they can during times like these to get it situated.

Does anyone know, how long will the servers be down? Hours, days, weeks?


 


Was a nice update. Had no trouble with it, and was having fun hauling furniture over to my house from abandoned deeds and all. A shame this had to happen :(
