Another targeted DDoS attacks against GG poker network
Everything has been going smoothly not until Wednesday when the GG poker network had several DDoS(Distributed-Denial-of-Service) attacks; this is not the first time such is happening to the network. Especially yesterday, 10/10/2019, the attacks were powerful, and the poker network was off for several hours. Unfortunately, DDoS is more common in the online poker scene, and all the big names have been affected in the past.
The GG Network is a fast-rising company that is gaining more supporters. Due to this, its competitors may not like its growth; therefore, countering them with unfair attacks. Of course, such things are an apparent crime, but who can officially prove where these attacks come from? Nobody! Even though it is clear that the attacks came from its competitors.
A poker network may try to protect itself against DDoS attacks, but unfortunately, it might not do much, and in the end, it has to wait patiently and hope that it will be over soon. Generally, such attacks incur costs and usually finish after 24-48 hours.
The purpose of these attacks on prominent poker networks is to distract players and lure them away to other competitors. Worst of all, most players do not even know why a poker network is down as a result of these attacks, which often gives the impression that the poker site is not serious and safe. There is no doubt that every player wants continuous accessibility and don’t want to get fed up when they want to play poker games.
Sadly, some people choose to attack notable poker networks to destroy or create big damage to their reputation. On the 1st of October 2019, a revised Rush & Cash Fast-Fold Poker variant was introduced, and promotion worth 500k started. The new variant struck like a ‘bomb’ and rose the number of players on the network, which was certainly not very well received by other competitors.
It is evident that the GG Network is doing an outstanding job and they deserve to grow and get more traffic.
