RSS Subscribe DDoS Attack July 15th 2013
Posted on 16/07/13 02:37PM

For clients hosted in our Auckland datacentre, you may have noticed yesterday that there was a significant network degradation from 3:45pm until 4:55pm, causing most services to be unreachable.

Whilst our upstream providers are still investigating the issue at this stage it appears one of the platforms at the datacentre was attacked by a significant DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack. This saturated the border routers, making this network inaccessible, affecting other providers too.

Service was restored just before 5pm as our providers mitigated the attack, however customers may have noticed another brief outage at 5:50 as they worked on our border routers.

We sincerely apologise for any disruption caused by this DDoS attack. Whilst our providers still working through analysing this attack, please rest assured that they will be taking steps to enhance our ability to mitigate such events more quickly in the future.
