WarZ - Under Attack

Things are just getting worse and worse for WarZ, the online Zombie Apocalypse game, as we are now getting reports that the servers are under attack. At first they told us it was DNS issues but it now looks as if it's a full DDOS attack, either some disgruntled banned user or angry customers are out for revenge.

So not only do we the Gamers(s) have to deal with hackers on the servers but the servers themselves are suffering, here's the message we got from facebook.
Guys over the last few days we have been under attack by various forums of malicious attempts to shut down our servers. First we were hit with an attack that would rest our DNS IP so that you could not connect. This was solved a couple days ago early in the morning but took time to actually resolve world wide once the fix went in.

This morning we are being hit, again, with a DDOS attack on our login server. We are implementing additional counter attack solutions and how to have this resolved asap. Unfortunately with these types of attacks it is very difficult to give a good time frame of when it will be resolved.

Thank you for your continues patience.

UPDATE - - - - - C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc ------ 

Delete this below from the hosts file: thewarz.com forums.thewarz.com www.thewarz.com api.thewarz.com

So all you have is ( BACK UP/SAVE THE ORIGINAL FIRST )

 # Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
#     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#     x.acme.com              # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
#       localhost
#    ::1             localhost

As they maybe changing the Ip's/Dns soon because of the attacks, though even if that is done don't expect to get in straight away because of what's going on.

UPDATE 2 -  The servers should be all good now according to the Developers
