MyAnimeList DOWN 8+ Hours, People Believe Nux Taku Fans Are To Blame

MyAnimeList DOWN 8+ Hours, People Believe Nux Taku Fans Are To Blame

MyAnimeList, according to their Twitter has been down since 5:37 PM (UK Time).

They say it’s because their site is under a strong DDOS attack.

Ironically – I’ve noticed ALL DAY on February 18th I couldn’t access MyAnimeList.

Even now when I try to use the site, It fails to load.

And website service checkers report the same thing.

Misty Chronexia’s “tongue in cheek” comment points to Nux Taku

 

It’s not just anime YouTuber: Misty Chronexia who believes it

 

But some people at least know that’s NOT true

 

But there’s always gotta be that “one” fan who says something daft like this

 

A voice of reason from MAL’S team

As we can see – people are blowing this out of proportion.

People don’t realize how often websites are attacked on a DAILY basis.

In fact – as we speak, Anime Motivation is being attacked almost every second in one way or another. Just not at the level of a DDOS attack.

So imagine what a website like MAL is experiencing right now because of the DDOS attack.

 

Taking a website down for 8+ hours is the damage it causes

It seems anime websites in the west like:

  • Anime News Network
  • Crunchyroll
  • And now MyAnimeList

Have all been targets of some sort of attack at some point in their history.

Whatever the motivation – it’s clear someone has a personal issue that can’t be explained.
