Translation DDOS'd again.

Granted the other fellow has stopped, but there are many more ticked off customers than just him. This game is now big talk in the real hacking community and none of it good. Lots of talk about how lax their web security is, how lax and outdated their financial payments section is. I suspect this is not going to end well with peoples financial info.

Makes you wonder doesn't it, when they have this many issues so soon after launch, what sort of infrastructure they actually had access to when they set up shop.

inb4 they claim DDOS again and accept no accountability for anything.

Honestly, I'm surprised it took this long for hackers to attack the war z. I'd expected stuff like this to happen as soon as they "released" their money grab.

If I had paid money for this game, I'd be worried about my cc info, seeing as their security is... well... non existant. By doing a simple background check on hammerpoint, I knew exactly what to expect from them and they didn't disappoint. I mean, I expected some e-drama but I never dreamed it would be this good.

This thread was created before that forum/twatter/facebook announcement.

I just mentioned this on the other thread about everything being down. Just wanted to mention, running a whois lookup on thewarz.com, it shows their domain in redemption. I personally work in the hosting industry, and a domain generally only goes into this phase when it's been expired for about 30 days, and then it goes into redemption for about 3 months before going back into the public.

If the domain was cut off, would be the reason for anything that uses it to be down. Just speculation, however the Paramount ordeal might have taken it's toll. I'm wondering if 1&1 was forced to push that domain into redemption.. as the domain didn't expire until May 2013.
