    You do realize that many ddo attacks take days to fix right? The fact that they fixed the last one in about 5 hours is something to take pride in. It really just depends on how many pc's they have doing the attack and how skilled they IT is. If it only takes an hour and a half to end it then it is a really small end ddo.

    But shouldn't this type of thing have methods and preventions already in place? I mean, FW is one thing, But what if someone wants to DDoS a bank? Or AIG or something like that? Wouldn't that be an ever BIGGER problem? How do they make sure there systems stay safe, and why can't PWE but some of the same standards in place? It just seems to me like this isn't something new, there is obviously ways to prevent or stop this type of thing happening.

    Only compensation I want is these pathetic little script-kiddies prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, preferably Vlad Tepes' law. You know, you start impaling people and the rest shape up pretty darn quick.

    And I have no desire for a Subestimate title.

    DDoS is not a virus, so.. anti-virus programs aren't going to help it. Whoever is DDoSing has a few server boxes and they're using a botnet to send packets through the server and flood it, causing the game to crash and stay down. There really isn't anything that can be done to fix it except wait it out.

    it's healthy and advisable to sebestimate at least once per day

    Actually banks can suffer from a ddos. I'm sure there is protection out there otherwise people would do it to wow. And when it's done to a bank it keeps bank cards from working atms ect ect. I'm really not sure why they have not protection against this.....

    So...uh, what does sebestimate mean, exactly? I feel like such a tool for asking, but I can't find the answer online, and the search function here is whacked or something.

    Yea, thats true... If they took no precautionary measures what so ever! I mean come on. You know how many people try to attack Google? Yahoo? AOL? Microsoft? All the major IT companies get attacked on a weekly, sometimes daily, basis. Yet somehow, their products are still up and running without a hitch 99.9% of the time.
