A hacking attack on the Swedish gaming site Svenska Spel shut down an online poker tournament, causing the event to be cancelled.
The tournament cancelled the action for 1,451 players and was a result of a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, which caused the site to go offline. The attack is one of several that Svenska Spel suffered in recent days.
The attacks appear to have been repelled as of the publication of this article, and Svenska Spel's website is currently up and running.
