DDOS curvefever

Dear players,

Unfortunately we had a DDOS attack this saturday, starting at around 9 o'clock. Now everything is up and running again. No data is lost or anything.

Best regards,

Geert

good to see curve running again ^^. btw even when site was under attack (Saturday, maybe 11pm), in-game lobbies were still working, as we were able to play and chat with ppl in the room.

I know, it is because the game servers are not on the website servers. However, the website servers are used for authentication and stuff. Changing it would require alot of time, but we are investigating several options on how to solve this in the future.

Best regards,

Geert

@ five 

If you bought premium for one year than the price per day is way less then 5cent a day.

The server was perhaps down for 48 hours so you want coins for less than 10cents? Sounds ridicoulous.

 

I can remember the last time someone hacked here and it to way longer till the page was up again.

Also i heard that geert was really into the problem and worked right from the moment on it appeard till midnight and even longer.

I'm very positive surprised that the site works again so fast and I'm really happy to see that we have an active devoloper who really cares about this game.

 

I wouldnt say that he should give us some coins back, but i think he would deserve more people buying premium, cause he works really hard, good and fast

You probably have NO idea what a DDoS attack is and what it causes. There is nothing you can do when a DDoS hits  you and can only wait out. There are also not many options to keep a DDoS-attack away. Only a firewall can help a little, but it is still hard to find the ''good'' connections and the ''bad'' ones. So they couldn't do anything about it.

Live with it, you also pay for food and it's not allowed to eat everywhere... but do you ask for a compensation? Probably not.

coins back for one day you could not play, are you serious? dont matter about the coins and just play the game! it was hard for me too not be able to play but i think it's great that Geert put his time in this game to bring it back online. i just have two questions these ddos attacks, is it such easy to do this that this can happens more often and you couldn't do anything against it? and will you do something against the hacker like going to police? i don't know if this is possible i'm just asking for it.

Thanks guys for the positive feedback. I had a terrible day yesterday, and am also happy that it is back online. Furthermore I can inform you that we are working really hard to find a more reliable host.

Best regards,

Geert

They registered the page name before us. The correct facebook is https://www.facebook.com/curvefevergame

Again? I wonder why people would want to target this site, there is nothing to be gained…

Anyway, good job on bringing the site back online so quickly. :)
