Blizzard Servers Under DDoS Attack, Preventing Players from Logging In

It has just been reported that Blizzard’s servers are currently under a DDoS attack, which is preventing players from logging into Diablo IV and its other online services.

The attack began earlier today and has been ongoing for several hours. Blizzard has confirmed that the attack is solely targeting its Battle.net servers, which are used to authenticate users and connect them to games.

As a result of the attack, Diablo IV, World of Warcraft, Overwatch 2, and other Blizzard games are experiencing login errors and latency issues. Blizzard has said that it is working to mitigate the attack and restore service as quickly as possible.

DDoS is a common server attack, but lately companies have invested heavily into making sure this doesn’t affect their services. These attacks are basically a form of cyberattack that involves flooding a server with malicious traffic. This can overwhelm the server and prevent it from functioning properly.

In the case of Blizzard’s servers, the attack is likely being carried out by a group of hackers, but we don’t know for sure. This is because an attack of this scale is most probably not the doing of a single person.

Blizzard has not yet identified the group responsible for the attack, and no one at the time of writing has stepped forward. However, the company has said that it is working with law enforcement to investigate the matter.

In the meantime, players who are experiencing problems logging into Blizzard games are advised to check the company’s website, and social media for any sort of updates. Blizzard has said that it will provide updates as soon as it has more information on the attack.

This is all we know for now, but rest assured that we will keep you updated as new information becomes available.

Update: Blizzard has announced that it has taken steps to mitigate the DDoS attack and that service is slowly being restored. However, some players may still experience login errors and latency issues. Blizzard said that it will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as necessary.
