WillHill Sportsbook Back Online Following DDoS Outage
British bookmaker William Hill is back online. The sportsbook has fielded complaints over Twitter for much of the last six days as they were hit with what was described as a sophisticated DDoS attack.
Thousands of players were unable to log-in and place a sports wager online during the time-frame though the mobile app continued to work as normal.
A distributed denial of service attack works by overwhelming a web server with thousands of junk requests to flood the system and cause disruption.
William Hill advised one user early Monday morning to clear his cache to regain access to the website. Sportsbook Review confirmed that William Hill is running as normal and reactivated the betting site on the SBR Odds grid.
