RuneScape studio spends million to upgrade infrastructure after DDoS attacks

RuneScape developer Jagex has upgraded the browser-based MMO's infrastructure to help combat ongoing DDoS attacks on the game, CEO Mark Gerhard revealed in a recent blog post.

The company has been "the target of numerous DDoS attacks," writes Gerhard, stating the attacks are closely tied with "the removal of bots and gold farming."

As a result, Jagex has just made a multi-million pound investment to upgrade its IT infrastructure and is working closely with global law enforcement "to bring the people responsible for these attacks to justice."
