Betfair And Pokerstars Connectivity Issues

Was PokerStars under DDoS attack too?

Wagering giants PokerStars and Betfair reportedly experienced major connectivity problems over the past weekend with Betfair taking to Twitter Monday to confirm the company was fighting off a DDoS attack.
"We're currently experiencing a DDoS attack on our site. We're working to fix this as quickly as possible," the tweet informed.
While PokerStars have not confirmed a similar attack, forum posts along with Tweets from Lee Jones – head of poker communications, indicate connectivity and slow response times on the website since as early as April 9, 2015.
This past weekend customers experienced major lag and time out issues with the PokerStars tech team eventually forcing a restart of the server.
Latest forum reports indicate the service had returned to normal when InfoPowa went to press.
