Outage VG TS3 Restored After DDoS - Here's What Happened


Staff member

So I know some of you are curious as to what happened over yesterday with the TeamSpeak, so here's a basic overview:
  • At 10:12 PM ET, the Vaxoc Gaming TeamSpeak server was attacked with a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack.
  • At 10:13 PM ET, our server was automatically placed under a null route to stop the attack from doing any more damage, bringing the server down. We immediately contacted the VPS company that powers our TeamSpeak, and launched an investigation into the matter.
  • At 11:12 PM ET, the null route was lifted, and the TeamSpeak restored.

This does NOT mark the end of our investigation. As a reminder, attacks against any node of the Vaxoc Gaming Network are STRICTLY prohibited, and in many cases illegal. If you are found to have initiated, planned, or participated in any attack against the VG network, your service(s) with us will be terminated.

We will continue this investigation, but thank you all for your patience during that time! :)
