Square Enix has reported they are currently experiencing DDoS attacks from anonymous third-party targeting the Final Fantasy XIV game servers on North American and European data center. Due to these attacks, the game servers, network equipment and network connection are being hit with heavy load at an extensive level, which is causing a disconnection from the game and login difficulties.
Square Enix’s technical staff is taking every possible measure to address this issue but the attack is still continuing to take place by changing their methods at every moment. They will continue to monitor and work on recovery at any possible way.
* What is DDoS Attack?
An attack attempting to increase the server load to an extensive level by flooding the network of the targeted servers using a massive number of computers.
However with the attack we are currently experiencing, only a massive number of accesses are being made to the server where both character data and personal information of our customers are not in harm.
