Bbc.co.uk domain has suffered outage which took down the broadcaster’s website, iPlayer and all other digital services. Website visitors started complaining about the iPlayer and website problem in the early hours of the 31 December, and major issues were experienced around 7am.


As a result, bbc.co.uk was just returning 500 error code pages. According to visitor’s feedback, some parts of it were intermittently loading while others were completely offline. The site was back online shortly before 11am. According to unofficial information from the BBC, its website suffered from a distributed denial of service attack, but the press office claimed it was just “a technical issue”. Anyway, all the BBC services were now restored and operating normally.

As you may know, DDoS attack overwhelms a website with traffic, making the general public unable to request pages. In other words, the attack of this type effectively takes the website offline and is normally used as a form of protest or paves the way to invasive cyberattacks.

The BBC confirmed that its radio and television broadcasts were unaffected, only the digital services were taken offline, with users immediately taking the issue to social networks as a sign of an impending apocalypse.

In the meantime, the broadcaster is in the process of migrating more and more of its traditional services to its website, which makes the issue more relevant. The last major outage of the company’s online services was 5 years ago, when its main domain went offline for an hour due to technical issues. The company later admitted that it had suffered from cyberattacks, which took its Farsi-language service in London and its telephone and email services offline. In this particular case, the responsibility for the DDoS attack was claimed by anti-Isis hackers, but the broadcaster didn’t provide any comments on the issue.

Embolism avatarObviously the Beeb does not have a java backend to its server to put a stop to such attacks as others such as Betfair who learned the hard way that server security is paramount if they do not wish to be shutdown by such bot attacks,Betfair lost 10 million in revenue from a 4 day attack sometime back and with the Beeb even a short time offline will get noticed by the millions around the world.
