I spoke with a guy that had some interesting results using a distributed NTP style attack while he was pentesting his system. According to him there is basically nothing that can be done to protect from it - It's something like the networking equivalent of dozens of cluster bombs being dropped. All you can do is hunker down and wait for it to be over.

Maybe because Ubisoft is just hosting game servers and not running a bank.

it doesn't matter whether Ubisoft is involved or not, its clearly illegal to DDoS someone without their consent, e.g. how would you feel like if that service was used on you?

Reboot the router and carry on?

Idk, do microtransactions involve real money in the end?

You do bring up a good point though - Why aren't companies that handle lots of micro transactions being held to the same standards as banks?

Really?

That's like saying any company that sells anything anywhere should be as secure as a bank.

No it's not. Their security standards should be in line with their sales to ensure customers information remains secure. No more and no less is necessary. The trouble is there is no regulation or standard being followed and customer information leaks are constantly ocurring.

getting DDoS'ed by a service isn't just a one-time attack, DDoS attacks lasts days or even weeks of non-stop attacks.
otherwise why do you think those huge corporations that got DDoS'ed not just shrug and reboot their routers and solve the problem in just a few seconds, instead of becoming unresponsive for many many hours?

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

I'm not saying they shouldn't be secure and held to certain standards, but Ubisoft should hardly be held to the highest standards of security anymore than say, McDonald's. One would assume a bank would be more secure than a video game company. Plus this has nothing to do with any kind of data breach, it's just an attack to hinder their servers.

Umm, IP addresses can be changed, brah. No target = no DDoS
