Network Issues (DDOS) [Resolved]
Posted by Helpdesk Admin on 08 August 2014 01:10 PM
We've seen a significant slowdown on several services in the last few minutes, this is affecting email and web for some sites.
The cause of this is a denial of service attack on some systems, we have a 30x increase in network connections at the moment.
We are implementing some countermeasures to divert unwanted traffic but we expect disruption to service to continue for another while.
Most of the traffic has been diverted at this stage, we expect most services to be back to normal within the next hour or two.
We were able to restore services earlier, but there are some continuing issues which will take another hour or two to sort out
All services should be back to normal now.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this disruption.
