RuneScape and Eve Online suffer DDoS attacks

A series of sustained distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks across a number of games including including MMOs RuneScape and Eve Online have caused widespread server disruption for players.

RuneScape developer Jagex posted on the game’s forum warning users not to participate in “dangerous/high-risk content such as PvP or high level PvM”, noting server disruption across both its game and web services.

Eve Online developer CCP has also tweeted that its Tranquility server has been under a number of DDoS attacks, though connectivity has now been restored for the timebeing. It has also been suggested that games including League of Legends and Guild Wars 2 have been affected.

Develop has more details.
