Costa Rica – Full Flush Poker confirms network DDOS attacks

By - 17 December 2014

FullFlushPoker.com has confirmed it recently experienced a number of disruptions to service as a result of several targeted Distributed Denial of Service attacks, known as DDOS attacks on the EquityPokerNetwork’s Games Server.

EPN’s official statement earlier today outlined the issue, explaining that these concerted attacks have coincided with a growing number of industry reports currently circulating of many other online poker networks being hit with very similar DDOS attacks. The mounting evidence provides a strong indication that the DDOS Attacks on EPN are not isolated incidents, but part of a more calculated wider assault on online poker businesses.

At FFP, these attacks have occurred intermittently across the past six weeks, causing some short-term disruptions to player connectivity, and frustrating poker room outages. For players, the DDOS Attacks have resulted in quick, short disconnections from the Game Server, which has meant very temporary interruptions to tournament and cash game play at various times. These outages have mostly been short-lived, and the small number of player issues dealt with quickly and efficiently by Customer Support.

“We apologise to our players, for these recent disconnections caused by nefarious outside sources. We ask for patience and support, as we continue to fight with all our own resources to counteract these attacks, and to deliver a stable, and fair gaming experience with every mechanism at our disposal,” said a Full Flush Poker Spokesperson. “We understand how frustrating this has been for our players, but we ask that if you experience a disconnect to be patient, wait 30 to 60 seconds for our mitigation devices to kick in, and the service will be restored as normal. We also want to reassure our players that at no time throughout these attacks has the security of their data ever been compromised.”

FFP will continue to work closely with the Network to protect its poker playing community from any impact these DDOS attacks may have, and the online poker site is committed to implementing additional layers of security to safeguard the privacy and safety of their FFP Player accounts.
