On the night of December 9th, many Real-debrid users were faced with the issue of their favorite streaming app not pulling any links. With a paid service like Real-debrid most users expect to have high quality working links at all times.
Sometimes certain expectations cannot be met. Real-debrid has always been a highly reliable service that has very little downtime if any at all.
Real-debrid went almost completely down on December 9th for several hours. During this time there was no mention as to why this service wasn’t working. Most users flocked to social media accounts only to learn that there was no new information. Many users began to speculate that Real-debrid had been shut down and that more closures were to come.
Thankfully, this was not the case. Real-debrid disclosed soon after that their shutdown was a direct result of a DDoS attack. They did have certain measures in place that kept some users from seeing any negative results however their DDoS protection also ended up blocking legit users as well.
For this reason, many users were left not being able to access their accounts, pull links, or even order services.
Below is a statement that was released by Real-debrid explaining what took place on December 9th.
We have been victim of a DDoS attack during the night (Paris time), our scripts protected the website and some people were still able to use our service properly but it blocked way too much legit traffic too. The website should be now up & running for everyone now.— Real-Debrid (@RealDebrid) December 10, 2020
We have not been compromised, hacked or anything else. Haters tried to put RD completely down. Non-Exhaustive list of possible attackers : filelocker, competitor and so on— Real-Debrid (@RealDebrid) December 10, 2020
