CCP Games have sent word that both EVE Online and DUST 514 have returned to full operation following a DDoS attack over the weekend.

A post on the community site explains that “a person was able to utilize a vulnerability in one of the back-end services that support the operation of the Tranquility server. This vulnerability has now been secured and thoroughly tested.”

CCP stress that at no time was any customer data compromised or even accessible to the people behind the DDoS attack.

“We will be looking at ways to compensate players in both EVE and DUST for the outage,” say CCP, “and expect to announce what that compensation will be very soon.”
