Bitfinex Reports Temporary Outage as DDoS Attack Takes Bitcoin Exchange Down

Postby kreslik.news » Sun Dec 03, 2017 9:49 pm


Hong Kong-based bitcoin exchange Bitfinex today said that its platform was under distributed denial-of-service attacks, or DDoS, that attempted to paralyze its system with a flood of information.

The second largest US dollar-based bitcoin exchange saw a spike in traffic this Monday morning and the number of connections attempting to reach the website was enough to temporarily disrupt its activity.

At 7:39 a.m. ET, on Twitter, Bitfinex stated that its website was under a massive DDoS attack, which managed to take it down.
