Someone tried to DDOS attack the Axie marketplace hence why adventure map won’t load. Players can’t even save edited teams. But what is DDOS by the way? And why some othe guy wants to attack the new online games Philippines sensation?
What is a DDoS Attack?
Dispersed Network Attacks are regularly alluded to as Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. This sort of attack exploits the particular limit restricts that apply to any arrange assets –, for example, the foundation that empowers an organization’s site. The DDoS assault will send various solicitations to the assaulted web asset – fully intent on surpassing the site’s ability to deal with numerous solicitations… and keep the site from working effectively.
Facebook said late Monday that the organization believes a “faulty configuration” change caused a far and wide blackout that kept going about six hours.
Facebook’s VP of engineering and infrastructure, Santosh Janardhan, said in a blog entry:
“Our engineering teams have learned that configuration changes on the backbone routers that coordinate network traffic between our data centers caused issues that interrupted this communication. This disruption to network traffic had a cascading effect on the way our data centers communicate, bringing our services to a halt.”
How Does DDoS attack works?
Network assets such as web servers, have a limited cutoff to some number of requests that they can support at the same time. Notwithstanding the limit furthest reaches of the server, the channel that interfaces the server to the Internet will likewise have a limited data transmission/limit. At whatever point the quantity of requests surpasses the limit furthest reaches of any part of the infrastructure.
Anyways, Axie Infinity guaranteed that the funds are safe, so I guess we don’t have to worry for now.
