Blizzard games, hit by DDoS attacks


Blizzard games Diablo, World of Warcraft, StarCraft, and Hearthstone have all been affected by DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks in Europe.

The company says it’s investigating an issue affecting its authentication servers, which may result in failed or slow login attempts.

“Diablo, World of Warcraft, StarCraft and Hearthstone players may be impacted by high latency and disconnections during their gaming experience that are the result of a series of DDoS attacks on certain European online services. Although Blizzard’s infrastructure isn’t targeted, the disruption effects rippled and have been felt by a portion of our players’ population,” said Blizzard.
