WILL HILL THE LATEST UNDER DDOS ATTACK
“Sophisticated” attack, says bookmaker.
William Hill has apparently been battling with a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack over the past two days.
According to The Register.co.uk, “many of the bookies sites went down on Tuesday and have remained unable to provide much better than intermittent service into Wednesday due to an ongoing cyberattack”.
A wider statement from William Hill on Wednesday, described the attack as “sophisticated”.
“The online services of William Hill were intermittently impacted during the course of yesterday following distributed denial of service (DDoS) activity by third parties,” the statement said.
"This follows a significant increase in DDoS activity experienced by a number of online companies over recent weeks.
"While the attempt at disruption is ongoing our technical teams were able to restore services last night. We apologize for any inconvenience caused to our customers."
