CCP gives EVE Online players 50K skill points after DDoS attack

EVE Online
The EVE Online and Dust 514 servers are back online after CCP Games took them down this weekend, following a DDoS attack. CCP says this was the "longest downtime in quite a while," and it's giving EVE players 50,000 unallocated skill points to make up for it.

All accounts except for trials received the skill points during today's update of EVE Online: Odyssey, the game's nineteenth free expansion.

CCP stressed that the DDoS attacks didn't breach any customer data and the loophole that allowed the attacks has been secured. There's no word yet on Dust 514 players receiving comparable compensation.
