Common Problems

  • A player has threatened to DDoS me, please ban him.
  • I am being DDoS'ed by another person, can you stop him?

If you were threatened with or have been the target of a DDoS attack, contact your local authorities. This type of cyber attack is a criminal violation and must be investigated by local police.

A DDoS is a complicated process used by hackers to disrupt your internet service. It is impossible for another player to obtain the information that they would need to DDoS you unless you use non-Blizzard software such as a voice over internet program where another user could obtain your IP information. None of your in-game Blizzard interactions allow other players to access your private information.
