Facepunch Studios has confirmed that their title Rust has recently come under attack from ‘scripters’.
Rust, inspired by games such as Minecraft and DayZ, offers players gameplay which is set in a hostile environment. The hostility is however being currently directed towards Facepunch in the form of DDoS attacks. These attacks are sending patches of information to the game’s servers, slowing or crashing them. This results in gamers being unable to play Rust.
Facepunch Studios has commented that there is little they can do but that Valve has someone working to solve the issue. Considering that the game is still Alpha it is odd that the title would be targeted. Hopefully Valve gets the issues sorted sooner rather than later.
