Twitter disables the account responsible for the DDoS attack

Twitter has closed the account of someone claiming to have dropped the World of Warcraft (WoW) servers this weekend. Players were unable to connect to the WoW and WoW Classic yesterday (Saturday 7 September) following a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack.

In addition to WoW, it seems that Overwatch was also affected by it attack, with some users disconnected from the games and unable to reconnect. It seems that both the EU and the EU USA were affected.

Yesterday afternoon, Blizzard Entertainment reported that the attack was over, although some users have reported downtime after that.

Blizzard added: “Today, on Saturday, September 7, World of Warcraft has been adversely affected by an ongoing DDoS attack. For several hours today, we have seen it repeatedly accounts of WoW to become target and disconnected from them invaders.

“It is our first priority to resolve any problems that prevent players from being able to play World of Warcraft smoothly. However, it is the nature of DDoS attacks that players may experience the game as unavailable. If you are disconnected or have problems connection, please be patient and wait a few minutes before trying again.

“We will continue to work to address it situation. Thank you for your patience and understanding. ”

One user or group on Twitter named @UKDrillas claimed responsibility for the attack. This account has since been suspended from Twitter.

UKDrillas also attacked Wikipedia before turning his attention to Blizzard and World of Warcraft, as Haaretz.com reports.

A DDoS attack is an attempt to flood a network with a series of requests in a short period of time in an attempt to overload systems and download a website or online service.
