In February 18, 2014, the online game Wurm Online’s servers were attacked by a massive DDOS based attack. The DDoS attack made the gaming application offline for more than a day. For this reason, the company posted an announce, saying that they will offer a 10 000 euro reward ( 13 000 $ ) for any tips or evidence to a conviction of the person responsible for this attack.
Shortly after todays update we were the target of a DDOS attack and our hosting provider had to pull us off the grid for now. We will be back as soon as possible but things are out of our hands since their other customers are affected. As we wrote in a previous news post we are planning on changing hosting anyways which should improve things for the future. We can offer 10 000 Euro for any tips or evidence leading to a conviction of the person responsible for this attack.
