Yesterday, September 7, 2019, WoW Classic Servers were down in DDoS attacks. Blizzard is under a massive attack as World of Warcraft, Overwatch and Diablo 3 servers are down. On the World of Warcraft forums, Blizzard posted a message to players letting them know what was going on. Apparently, UkDrillas the attacker has posted on Twitter that he’s taken down Overwatch servers as well. He purposely attacked Faerlina which is a popular server for many Twitch streamers. Players were so confused about what was happening that they posted on Reddit and asked what was going on.

What Does This Attack Mean For You?

A DDoS attack means a network is unable to be reached. The attacker does this by sending so much traffic to a server that it becomes overwhelming. So basically it’s like an early morning traffic jam. This is different than a Denial of Service (DoS) attack which only comes from one computer. A DDoS attack is a lot harder to stop because it’s sent from multiple computers worldwide.

Blizzard is working quickly to solve the problem. It’s also impacting Diablo 3 and Overwatch. In May of last year, Calin Mateias was sentenced to a year in US prison for a DDoS attack he launched on World of Warcraft servers in 2010. He also had to pay about $30,000 to Blizzard for the damages that he caused. If UkDrillas really is doing this then they are certainly bold.
