Sports betting platform Bet9ja is recovering from a cyberattack. A spokesperson confirmed that all is well but that recovery will take time. As it stands customers are unable to access the site or their accounts. Thankfully the spokesperson confirmed that no accounts are at any risk.
Unfortunately, Bet9ja is not the first online sportsbook to deal with an online attack. There has been an increased number of similar reports across the online betting landscape.
Taking the Matter Seriously
The Bet9ja spokesperson confirmed that the matter is being taken very seriously. Mention was also made of the dangers of false information. In that regard, the spokesperson insisted that only officially released statements be believed. It was also confirmed that the site will be back online soon. Customers that log in after reopening are to be treated to a sensational bonanza of promotions.
The spokesperson concluded that much is being learned from the attack and that security will be bolstered.
It seems that Bet9ja will be more prepared for cyberattacks in the future. Customers will also be thankful that their accounts are being kept safe during attacks. Hopes now are that other online bookmakers are as swift to respond to attacks from hackers.
