iWantClips VP Issues Statement About DDoS Attack
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Performer First Platform Targeted by Cyber Criminals!
Los Angeles, CA (October 20, 2017) – In a statement issued this week, iWantClips affirms its website was not compromised nor hacked during Sunday’s Distributed Denial of Service attack or DDoS attack, which made the site temporarily unavailable.
“At approximately 3:30 a.m. until approximately 9 a.m. on Sunday, October 15, the iWantClips.com website was hit with a DDoS attack causing the website to become unresponsive and ultimately unavailable,” Jay Phillips, Vice President of iWantEmpire which operates iWantClips and its sister sites, said in a statement. “We apologize for this inconvenience and are working tirelessly to prevent further interruptions. Our development team was aware of the attack within minutes of it occurring and was able to stop the DDoS attack within a matter of hours.”
A Distributed Denial of Service attack is when attackers gain control of other computers and use them to overwhelm a website with a barrage of requests for service, ultimately blocking users from using the targeted site.
In the statement, Phillips noted that the attack was a deliberate attack on the platform and not an accident. He says, “We have determined that this was not an amateur attack and was in fact a deliberate, well-funded, and strategized attack to take down iWantClips. While deeply concerning and regretfully inconvenient to our artists and fans, this attack serves to remind us of the threat that the success of each and every artist on the iWantEmpire represents to certain individuals.”
