2018/08/01 - Login Server Issues


(CCP Falcon) #1

Hey guys,

Issues from the DDoS attack earlier have now been cleared up, but we’re currently having a number of issues with our login servers.

We’ll keep you updated in this thread, with updates as and when we have them.

Apologies for the interruption this is causing. We can’t even begin to imagine how frustrating this must be for you guys.

We hope to have things up and running again soon.

Closing this topic since the DDoS issues are now over.

Further discussion of current issues here. 20

… so not DDoS , :thinking:

(CCP Falcon) #6

The DDoS issues are done, this is is a seperate problem.

Continuing to refer to the current issues as a DDoS related problem is misleading.

Further updates will be provided in this thread.

If we’re DDoSed again, it’ll be re-opened.

Your job is hard Falcon. I don’t envy you at all.

Don’t you get itchy sometimes to just click that “delete account” button on some of the people… :smiley:

if we lose ships because DDoS attack will be reimbursement?

(Dee Agnostic) #9

If this really was a DDOS attack, then maybe some user networks are still blocked by the DDOS mitigation system.

I hope you guys have legal teeth that can sort out this crap. It’s criminal damage to an established business affecting thousands and costing them and CCP in the process.

(CCP Falcon) #11

We’re looking at this right now.

Thank you for the updates @CCP_Falcon! I was able to log in. Log in was a little slow. Keep up the good work.
