get the csm to tell us that the emergency shutdown is actually the thing that is back in business and that we should be happy that the csm is making emergency shutdowns free at the point of delivery or something

or just lie

Dear friends.

Our services were subjected to a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS) at 17:00 UTC. We took everything down for the sake of caution while we conducted a full investigation.

Your data was not compromised and we are back in action.

Please go here for more details.

We thank you for your patience and hope you enjoy drifting back into space.

Update:
Tranquility is back offline. Please see this news post for more information and we will keep you updated as soon as possible.

Update @ 01:15 UTC:
Tranquility is now online. An update has been published to this news post.

Update @ 03:21 UTC:
We are aware of the difficulties some of you have connecting to the EVE Online server and we're looking into it.

Update @ 04:04 UTC:
The connection issue should now be sorted, but please post in this thread if anyone has any problems to connect to the EVE Online server.

Update @ 05:15 UTC:
Tranquility was taken down for an emergency reboot. This was caused by an issue not related to the earlier attacks.

Update @ 05:30 UTC:
Tranquility is back online. Please post in this thread if anyone has any problems to connect to the EVE Online server.



this doesn't count tranquility right?

I know very little (well close to nothing) about how these things work. Server side stuff scares/and bores this amateur would be website owner(well I have a couple flat html pages with adsense on them but thats hardly a web site)

Curious though...

Are there "security experts" of the entrepeneurial type who's compensation was based on whether or not the were able to crack someones system?

Certainly some ex-hackers work as consultants who are hired to recommend protections against attacks they can think of but a pure profit motive of pay to break in seems like it would spur the geniuses who can't be bothered with the interpersonal tact to actually interact as a consultant.

lol wut?

Sorry if I am gonna have to crab like a lot of other people, but what fun that on one of my two days off, on my birthday, this happens. Not you're fault I know, but what I am annoyed about is that the server comes back up and then I get kicked off again...trying to reset my PI so I can at least get SOME ISK.

Yeesh...wonder how I can make back the ISK I lost from this fiasco...


see it as a challenge, **** happens ;) happy b-day though

TY, and I know stuff happens but I don't get much time to play recently and I rely on PLEX, so I guess if I run out of ISK merp. I don't want SP, but I suppose something for monies could help. Oh goody down again...

CCP made the correct call in bringing down the servers. Their actions allowed for mitigation of any possible damage, and allowed for investigation into the perpetrating party.

We move onwards.

ok, so it was up for about 5-10 min. and now back down again with no explanation or warning. Getting attacked again, or what's the story CCP?

Exactly the right move to shut things down until you knew what the deal was, easy call & common sense too.

tbh, I didnt expect to see the server come online again, then it to my surprise.

I hope that there wasn't another type of attack and that it's just an extra recheck of whatever necessary .. Yea I'm not a server expert either lol

Hey at least we can troll the forums again Laughing

Thank you CCP for your quick action and your general professionalism about this whole thing. While some of the other sites hit went quiet, you let us know what was happening, took quick action to guarantee the safety of your customers, and got things going again as fast as possible. Today was a shining example of CCP doing everything right, and why you deserve my 15$ a month. Thank you.

I think we're all wondering the same thing. We simply can't in for all day, and some sign from on high would be nice.

Is this the most real form of PvP ever ? CCP versus DDoS hackers ???

I, for one, got a warning. Was something like 2-3 minutes worth of one. Think is said something along the lines of 'See you in 20 minutes.' Either way, better to err on the side of caution. Good on ya, CCP

Is there a plan in place or changes being reviewed to prevent mitigate such attacks in future?

Also, why can we not change our account payment details (Credit cards) until 30 days game time remains, that is ludicrious.

How about not storing it at all (or opt in) and let us enter it when we want to add more game time, therefore mitigating breach risk even more.




yes you can pay for you eve online account by sending cheques to ccp that way they never store your card details as for mitigating such attacks in the future ccp plans to be the only provider of internet and telephone communications in the world so that they can simply disconnect people who try such things from the internet. the other more realistic option is they are going to brainwash everyone who knows how to do such things so that they can never be done to ccp.

(should I point out the sarcasm there or is it obvious?)

ok the serious bit, there is nothing anyone can really do to stop such attacks short of doing exactly what ccp did and for an online game that kinda sucks for us. Oh the bit about cheques was actually true or was last time I looked at the billing options but I should imagine that they still accept them.

damn servers crashed again, and i got a escalation that expires in roughly 3.5 hours... thing is, i need to leave now and will be back in roughly 3.3-3.4 hours.

will CCP pay my ticket if the police catches me speeding and then reset my timer for the escalation?

From what I understand, DDoS is impossible to stop if they really want to do it. Is this true?

When can we expect servers to be back up?

Melchiades Seti
Posted - 2011.06.15 00:05:00 - [57]
 

Guess UTC time is around midnight turning to the 15th right now. The game says the server is down, and so does the server monitor site. The posts and announcements seem to say it is up. I note this forum is very slow, are these nasty people at it again? Can anyone confirm for me the game is up? Thanks!
