Under Attack

Under Attack - EVE Online -

The same group of hackers responsible, or who claim responsibility, for the recent Sony hacking incident are now attacking CCP's EVE Online server. According to a terse post on the EVE Facebook page, CCP is shutting the server down until further notice to deal with the attack.

EVE Online and related services experienced an Internet attack. We have taken them down as a security precaution until further notice.


At 17:00 GMT today, CCP became aware of a distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS) attack against the EVE Online cluster and web servers.

Immediately, these services were taken offline. As an added precaution, all of CCP's infrastructure was disconnected from the public Internet.

The CCP Security team is conducting a thorough investigation to determine exactly what happened and how, what the possible impact may be and, first and foremost, assuring that any personal information of our customers remains secure.

More information will be released as it’s available.
