5/14 4pm DDoS on XboxOne

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

At approximately 4pm, our Xbox servers got hit with a 40Gbps DDoS attack.

Unfortunately when we get hit that hard, we have to shutdown access to the box so that the attack doesn't affect other servers.

We have shifted resources to other systems in the meantime, and at least 1 instance of each district is online.

We will put the other districts back online as soon as possible.

 

Thanks,
Matt

This only furthers the reason to make getting rid of hackers priority one above all else including the engine upgrade.

Using public cheats =/= 40 GBps DDoS Attack

Hackers make cheats, hackers make DDoS. 

Therefore all hackers are the same person. 

 

Hacker man bad!

Many people here still confuse hackers with blackhats.

A hacker is a whitehat programmer who can be compared to a locksmith. A blackhat destroys, a hacker finds holes and plugs them. Please everyone, use the correct terminology

Whitehat is someone that finds holes/flaws in systems and informs the company or organization about said holes/flaws so they can be patched. Usually they are also called Pentester or Penetration Tester. The term Forensic IT Specialist falls under it aswell as they investigate how someone got in and abused an allready compromised system.

 

Blackhat is someone who wants to use said system for malicious or other purposes for which the system wasnt designed or intended. A Blackhat usually doesnt destroy as the goal is manipulation or information gathering for monetary gain or political purpose. 

 

The term hacker is used for both these days.

 

A DDoS can be a form of blackhat "hacking" as you are disrupting a working service for ones own evil purposes.

But if Matt decided to DDoS APB himself for testing purposes it would be a form of Whitehat. :^)

 

40Gbps DDoS attack. Thats some serious dedication on nuking a ded game. :^)

I don't think it's interest of cheaters cheating in this game to DDoS attack it.

That would be cutting access from game for them.

 

I think it's more of salty people who either get banned, got some agenda against this game and/or playerbase, eventually people who just want it "to die already" (there is quite a lot of such people).

My only suspicion is that we just having degenerates rejected from other games (in which they were hacking or are hacking and just find APB anti-cheat security weaker to do their thing).

Heard a lot of talk about "Globals Elites" from APB Hackers so I assume (and personally call them now) "CS:GO Rejects"

Uh lets see, the fact that your abusing something ur not supposed to just cause u wana ruin things for others? Cause your using a program that isnt allowed to be used? Because if your not hacking and doing things properly this wouldn't happen? What relevance dont hackers have here?

If hackers are migrating to APB from other game cause they can hack then its a giant red flag that LO cant ignore.
