World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Hearthstone and Other Games Attack by DDoS

Posted time: Aug 15,2017

Game company Blizzard Entertainment reported on August 13 that the DDoS attack hit its game servers, such as World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Hearthstone and other titles.

"We are currently monitoring a DDoS attack against network providers which is affecting latency/connections to our games," Blizzard posted on Twitter.


On Sunday, Blizzard noted that Down Detector, a tool used to monitor online outages, had recorded more than 2,800 reports, indicating that there was something wrong with its gaming services.

Igal Zeifman, the director at Imperva Incapsula, said in an email to SC Media, that even though the attacks failed to completely bring down an online gaming operating call, they still have a severe impact on the service.  "Competitive online games are an attractive target for any DDoS offender looking to create large-scale mayhem in hope of some Internet notoriety," said Zeifman. "Moreover, such gaming networks are also particularly vulnerable to denial of service assaults because, unlike many other targets, they don't need to be taken offline to become unusable."

"In the case of a real-time online game, even a small amount of  latency, as a result of a technically "failed" attack, is enough to cause major disruption to gamers looking for a completely responsive and immersive experience. This is exactly what is happening in this case. Even if some users are able to log in, the latency they experience still makes Overwatch unplayable."
