William Hill hit by ‘significant’ DDoS attack

William Hill hit by ‘significant’ DDoS attackWilliam Hill has revealed that a “significant” distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack was behind a loss of service earlier this week.

On Tuesday, many customers were unable to access the William Hill website, with problems regarding an intermittent service continuing into Wednesday.

In a statement, the bookmaker said it was one of a number of online companies to have suffered an increase in third-party DDoS attacks in recent weeks, and its technical team has been working to fix the problem.

“The online services of William Hill were intermittently impacted during the course of yesterday following DDoS activity by third parties,” William Hill said in a statement published by the Racing Post.

“This follows a significant increase in DDoS activity experienced by a number of online companies over recent weeks.

“While the attempt at disruption is ongoing our technical teams were able to restore services last night [Tuesday].

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused to our customers.”
