NETELLER down after DDos attack
As NETELLER announced through its Twitter channel two days ago, the website and payment gateways were under a DDos (Denial-of-service) attack, where a website service can be attacked through mass external communication requests, causing unavailability of the website and it’s connected services.
The NETELLER MasterCard system was also affected. Cash withdrawals at the ATMs with the NETELLER Net+ Card was therefor not available.
#NETELLER is subject to DoS a cyber-attack. We are working hard to resolve this. Our website is affected, and the payment processing system.

As of now, the systems and the website are back up and running.
