18 Apr Verified Crypto Traders Statement Regarding Recent DDOS Attacks
As some of you are aware this past week our portal and website came under fire by multiple DDOS attacks. Our security expert along with Lars and other team members are working their hardest to resolve this issue as quickly and efficiently as possible. Verified Crypto Traders takes security very seriously and we have been working in coordination with local police and the high-tech crime unit to determine the origin of these attacks. Most DDoS attacks are executed thru VPN services and are harder to trace, we have multiple security experts checking the IPs and see if we can trace the origin of the attacks.
While it has not yet been confirmed, these attacks appear to be coming from a competitor or unhappy customer who does not see the full value in our services and calls. While we always appreciate constructive criticism, attacks on our platform or traders will not be tolerated.
Since the attacks, Verified Crypto has taken multiple steps to secure the integrity of the site as well as prevent future attacks such as:
- We are moving our servers to a new dedicated platform with more bandwidth, as a result of this members should see faster response times for our website and services.
- We are cooperating with local police, the high-tech crime unit, and our hosting provider to determine the source of these attacks to put an end to them.
- We have implemented Cloudflair services into our platform to provide stronger content delivery networks, DDoS mitigation and increased internet security.
DDOS attacks occur every day in some of the most secure networks around the world, while it is impossible to completely prevent these attack attempts, we believe these new implementations will decrease the chances of any future attacks.
As always, we will keep you updated in our telegram channels and we thank you for your patience and understanding during these times. For now, all information will be shared on Telegram until future notice. We apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused.
Thanks for your support.
Ivo & The Verified Crypto Traders Team
