Hello basil this is GodlyMM here, about to inform you of the malicious DDoS attack. DDoS stands for distributed denial-of-service. Which is what basically happening to nexon at the moment. The way people DDoS, is they either attack from a single computer, or multiple computers. The way they do this is by overloading a server or website with "traffic", Usually a person or company with a big server can handle high traffic amounts. When someone tries to DDoS a server they attempt to make the server either slow down, or crash. This is done by using multiple computers to DDoS and send high amounts of traffic to the server causing it to overload. A single computer isn't considered a DDoS but a DoS attack. I'm pretty sure this is illegal and I have not learned as much as what the consequences are. I learned this in about 20 minutes of researching and this has quite interested me. Since it has been known for rival companies attacking their competitor with a DDoS attack, to basically screw them over. I'm pretty sure a group of hackers are attempting to bring down nexon. No one is safe from DDoS attack, since most firewalls allow port 32 (I believe) which is the access to internet, and if someone would attack from there, they can basically cause your system to crash.
