No Customer Data Was Accessed, Says CCP Games

Over the weekend many EVE Online and DUST 514 players found that they were unable to log in to those games. What had happened was that a significant DDoS attack was enacted upon CCP’s Tranquility cluster, which houses those particular games. It was a nightmare, and only yesterday was CCP able to get the cluster back online.

Luckily, it looks like no customer data was compromised because of the attack. According to CCP, the attacker was able to utilize a vulnerability in order to bring the game to a standstill. Now that they’ve discovered just what the vulnerability was, the company has been able to lock it down tight.

Luckily it looks like games will be getting some sort of compensation because of the outage. Though they haven’t announced just what that compensation is, I’d have to guess it might be some free game time, or something of the like. CCP will be sure to announce just what they’ll be doing soon.
