Blizzard Server Troubles
9:35 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Blizzard has released a status update on their servers, noting they have unfortunately been under attack as of late, once again. Both the web site server and the Battle.net system appear to be targeted by the offenders. If your Diablo II net game seems to be lagging more than usual, keep nasty e-mail you were planning to fire off to tech support to yourself for now. Here's an update on the subject from Blizzard:
We have become aware of the fact that an individual or group has It's really too bad that people feel the need to exercise their 'talents' in this way, as opposed to provide something productive to the online community. Look for Battle.net updates soon as their status changes.
Blizzard Battle.net and Web Server Update
initiated a server attack on both Battle.net and Blizzard's web
site. As a result of this illegal activity, many of our customers
are having difficulty logging on to the Battle.net game service
and accessing Blizzard's web pages. We are in the midst of
implementing a solution, but we wanted to let you know that the
situation is a direct result of external attacks on our servers,
and not a problem with Battle.net's stability.
The FBI and certain European law enforcement agencies have been
notified, and we are working in conjunction with them to identify
the individual. Attacks on our servers will not be tolerated, and
Blizzard fully intends to prosecute those responsible to the
fullest extent of the law.
If you have any information about the above activity, please
