UPDATE 3: 5:10pm EST: The servers have once again been restored. We’ll see how long this up time lasts.

UPDATE 2: 4:30pm EST: After a half hour of the servers being back up, the group has taken them down once again. This is likely a situation that won’t be ending anytime soon so, as stated before, we recommend staying away from the game client for the foreseeable future.

UPDATE: 4:05pm EST: The downtime of EVE Online seems to be coming to an end as nearly all of the servers have been restored and are operational. This has been the quickest fixes of the takedowns by the hacker group, but it’s certainly not a bad thing that they have been brought back online.

We will keep you updated if any more servers are attacked by the group.

The hacker group that has been running roughshod over the last 24 hours is at it again. This time, it’s yet another MMO, EVE Online, feeling the wrath of the attackers.

The group tweeted out around 3pm EST that the “next course of action involves spaceships”. Moments later, EVE’s website and servers dropped, and remain as such.

It appears, for now, that only the game itself is being hit, and users aren’t being specifically targeted like Monday. We will keep you updated on the EVE Online server status as they become available. For now, it’s best to stay away from the client to avoid risking your personal information.

    What is truly amazing is that with the technology game manufacturers have and operate does not include a way to track and deflect such a simple service as a DDOS. It’s truly amazing… I’m amazed…. BOOM! amazement!

    • Ryan

      Really the only way is to block all foreign connections but then other countries would miss out on player a great game.

  • HalJordan

    Why would you recommend players stay away from the game client? How could a DDoS possible lead to exposure of players’ personal information?

    Do you have more information on what is going on or is it you are just not familiar with the type of attack?

    • Mike Straw Jr.

      Yesterday the attack led to them putting zombie servers up which led to a leak of personal information. I’m just posting on the side of safety

        Smartarse hacker pricks.
        No wonder governments want to pass draconian laws regarding these issues.

      • Ryan

        Something is not quite right because if personal account info was leaked i would have likely gotten a email from CCP Games saying to change my password.
        Besides according to playstationlifestyle.net for a bit of fun why would account/login details be of interest?

  • Ryan

    I am ****ing sick and tired of these hackers ruining it for the thousands who play online and by the words”the foreseeable future” it could be days or even weeks before it’s safe to login again.Oh well so much for fitting x8 Dual Heavy Beam Lasers to my Abaddon in the next 3-4 days.
    Governments need to get tough on hackers by passing laws saying people with computer programming training will have their computer & online activity monitored.
