Tuesday March 26,2013 : ONLINE POKER SITE DOWN IN DDOS ATTACK
Bitcoin site hammered for two full days
The quaintly titled Seals With Clubs online poker site was down for two full days this week following a vicious Distributed Denial of Services attack from unknown sources.
Management at the Bitcoin-using, US-friendly site, which hosts around 400 players in peak hour playing periods, assured customers that no accounts were compromised.
The site's professional player, Bryan Micon, used leading poker information message boards to keep players informed on progress as technical teams fought to overcome the assault and secure the site, bringing it safely back online after the weekend.
He advised players to download the latest version of the poker room’s client.
