On the evening of September 7, Blizzard announced that the World of Warcraft Classic servers had been subjected to a DDoS attack. Because of this, there was a big delay in the game and disconnections. The attack mainly affected American servers.
In the early morning hours of September 8, the developers said they had handled the problem.
Gamers believe that the attack is hacker UkDrillas. Earlier, a message appeared on his twitter, in which he took responsibility for the problems with the WoW Classic servers. The profile is currently blocked.
On the evening of September 6, UkDrillas made DDoS attacks on Wikipedia and Twitch.
WoW fans themselves are unhappy with the actions of Blizzard. They criticize the company for its sluggishness and demand compensation for server problems.
In 2018, Blizzard sued one hacker who in 2010 attacked WoW servers. He organized a DDoS attack so that his rivals could not log in. He was sentenced to a term of one year and ordered to pay a fine of almost 30 thousand dollars.
