Server Crashes

Here we discuss our servers, and what's going on there...

Server Crashes

Postby [Aliens]kronenbourg » Mon Aug 17, 2015 10:15 pm

Got a reply from Fragnet:


Sadly as of the last few weeks, there has been a massive rise in attacks on Battlefield servers. This is due to an exploit that was recently found in Teamspeak 3 servers that makes them vulnerable to botnets and as such, many attackers have been using this to crash Battlefield servers specifically. While we have patched our own TS3 servers to prevent this, there are still thousands around the world that remain unpatched and are being used maliciously.

Unfortunately due to the nature of these attacks, they are incredibly difficult to prevent even with protection in place. Our network administrator is however working on a solution at this time which we expect to have in place over the next 48-72 hours. Once finalized, this should block the attacks and allow us to stop the crashes that are taking place.

The IP hosting your services with us is currently being null-routed.
This nullroute will be left in place for up to 4 hours unless our network technicians deem it is safe to lift it earlier.
We are very sorry for any inconvenience this outage might cause for you.

Good that they do anything about it , but we should have some extra for our trouble as we pay for a service that has not been delivered i feel!

Kro,

I have logged on to the game and gave a "!yell" and it worked OK, message came up. Therefore, it appears to be running fine. Fingers crossed.

Glen :)

Thanks Glen :yes:


One thing I have found (due to server update this week) is that it will show as Custom. This is just HC servers, and EA replied to me in the forum to say they're working on it.
