DDoS Attack Temporarily Brings Down Eve Online + Dust 514

DDoS Attack brings down the Tranquility Cluster, the servers hosting Eve Online and Dust 514.

Eve Online players found their gaming brought to a halt early Sunday morning. The source of the problem was found to be developer CCP’s Tranquility Cluster.

What is the Tranquility Cluster? It is the bank of servers that powers both Eve Online and Dust 514.  A short time later, officials decided that the best course of action would be to take the game offline. What was the problem? It ended up being a DDoS attack (otherwise known as distributed-denial-of-service).

The company kept their Facebook and Twitter accounts active for anxious gamers waiting to get back online. @EveOnline, the twitter account associated with the game, released this Tweet earlier during the confusion:

“Apologies for the current outage affecting EVE & DUST. We are investigating several issues and hope to have the situation resolved soon.”

Eventually, Eve Online and Dust 514 were put back online several hours later, but Tranquility and several other games were taken down.
