Blizzard DDoS attacks are going crazy as the company confirms rising DDoS attacks against the company.
The attacks are causing disconnections, high latency laggy gameplay, especially when the gamers are trying to play World of Warcraft (WoW).
The game starts experiencing high latency gameplays, affecting millions of online players globally, as confirmed by Blizzard’s customer support page. Some players have also lodged complaints of being disconnected from the servers during the game, and some are unable to log in during the cyber attacks.
What is a DDoS Attack?
The denial-of-service attack, also known as the DDoS attack, is a type of Cyberattack that generates fake traffic from different sources and pushes it towards the server, the attack target. This fake traffic bloats the server causing high latency, disconnection, and even the entire service going down.

Blizzard has been dealing with such cyberattacks several times last year, and some outages due to the DDoS attack have also been experienced this year. The major attacks took place back in April and June. The support team is ensuring and securing the servers from future attacks.
Such attacks are widespread in the web hosting field. The attackers are always looking for loopholes to attack the gaming servers, which are already filled with lots of users because of the online gameplay.
Many other gaming servers such as GTA V RP servers, CS Servers, Call of Duty, and Battlefield developers are spending huge investment in cybersecurity to mitigate such attacks on their servers. Not to mention, Fortnite has spent billions in making their server infrastructure rock-solid by implementing layer 6 DDoS protection.
DDoS attacks are illegal, and a person performing such activity can be imprisoned for multiple years, as the attack comes under damaging intellectual property digitally.
