I've never had this problem in the past. All of this is very new to me.
So I play call of duty black ops 2 on the PS3 . In the league play mode of that game, there seems to be a lot of "booters" or people who will boot your internet offline in order to win the game. At first, this was a minor issue. I only got booted offline once or twice and all I would have to do is reset my router and i would be fine.
Recently however, I've been getting DDoS'ed a LOT more. Everytime I play black ops 2, I will get booted AT LEAST 5 times a day. Its getting more and more frequent and quite annoying that some random person on the internet has the ability to shut my internet down.
Is there anything I can do about this? I've found a DDoSing prevention and solution guide on the internet. It talks about getting a VPN, but that costs money. The guide says that if I get a program called "tcpview" or something, I can get the IP of whoever is booting me.
What do you guys suggest I do? How should I prevent these attacks? More importantly, is there anything I can do to get the people doing this in trouble? Once I get their IP should I call Comcast and tell them about it? Any advice you guys have would be great.
I find it pretty pathetic that this is so common now. Why is nothing being done about this?
