Blizzard confirms was taken down by a DDoS attack

Blizzard has confirmed a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack was the root of the troubles that plagued users trying to log into its site.

“We are currently experiencing a DDoS attack, which may result in high latency and disconnections for some players. We are actively working to mitigate this issue,” wrote the company on Twitter, shortly before sharing that the attacks had ceased and all operations had been normalized.
