Bookmaker William Hill hit by massive DDoS attack

Giant bookmaker William Hill has announced that its website was under a major distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, which led to a loss of service earlier in the week.

Several William Hill customers on Tuesday weren’t able to access the company’s website. The very same problem was again reported on Wednesday.

The UK-based company then released a statement to inform the customers that it was one of the many companies that was hit by a DDos attack in the last couple of weeks. At the moment, the William Hill team is hard at work in order to fix this issue.

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

"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.”
