  • 10,000 Reward offered...

    Dear forum users,

    Since Sunday 24th of February and on each following day we have been subjected to a variety of attacks, in the form of DDOS (distributed denial of service) attacks on both the forum and the main shop site, and other automated attack attempts.

    All attempts to find vulnerabilities have been unsuccessful we regularly scan ourselves for such issues as part of our PCI compliance process and our database and applications have not been compromised credit card or other financial information is not stored by us and is therefore not available to an attacker, successful or otherwise. However the DDOS attacks will have caused some service outage on the forums, and to a lesser extent the main shop website.

    Since this is a serious criminal matter the police are now involved in the investigation of these incidents, and we will be unable to comment in any detail on the on-going investigation. We apologise to our customers for any inconvenience they may experience, and we would like to assure you that every step is being taken to ensure that business continues as usual, and that all confidential customer data continues to be protected.

    If anyone has any information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the individual(s) behind these attacks, we are offering a 10,000 reward. You might be his girlfriend, know him or them personally. Chances are that he/they are not going to be very popular. Just imagine what you can do with 10,000! A new car? Extension to the house? Pay off the loan? Latest gadgets?

    I was going to say it seems to kick-in every Sunday, but more importantly, i can't believe someone would actually do this.

    I've got zero to offer up other than support in hoping you catch them, so good luck, Aria/Staff.

            It was a disgruntled customer who did to it to UCUK.

            Maybe its that kid who put up all those horror images on the forum a while back, although he was using a VPN and set of proxys though so hard to trace unless you get specialists in.


            Good luck.

              Wouldn't surprise me. I quietly removed him from my Origin/BF3 list after his initial outburst which led him to sending me some pretty comedic and colourful/threatening PMs lol.

                    Said person tries to talk to me on occasion. Sadly he always tries to speak when I am in game and unable to respond.

                            Unless you have evidence please don't speculate, it will most likely just have the effect of aggravating more people and at the moment that is the last thing needed.
