Under-seige e-merchant WorldPay has taken steps to end the pain for online businesses after being hit by a massive denial-of-service attack over the last two days.
The internet payment system provider, owned by the Royal Bank of Scotland Group, has put in place solutions that it hopes will allow customers to process payments successfully before the end of today.
It has rerouted transactions so that genuine transactions are processed and others are ignored.
The company said this measure should restore the payment system for some customers immediately, but warned that it could take as long as 24 hours before it is effective for all customers.
WorldPay has also established additional back-up processing with entirely new addresses so that customers can 'point to' the new system and bypass the problems with the current one.
The e-tailer admitted that this "may take a small amount of technical work" by customers, but said that those customers would be able to start processing payments quickly and is offering to guide them through the process.
