Intermittent Service Issues
Post date: Aug 23, 2017 1:36:27 PM
UPDATE: 8:57AM CDT 8/23/2017
The DDOS attack affecting the hosting facility has stopped. Services are returning to normal. Some slowness may still be experienced as the services stabilize and bandwidth is cleared.
Our data hosting facility is fighting a denial of service attack (DDOS). This causes intermittent service on web site access, email services, applications, etc. As soon as more information is available we will make it available to you through this page.
A DDOS (distributed denial-of-service attack) - the attacker attempts to prevent legitimate users from accessing information or services. By targeting your computer and its network connection, or the computers and network of the sites you are trying to use, an attacker may be able to prevent you from accessing email, websites, online accounts (banking, etc.), or other services that rely on the affected computer. - from: https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/tips/ST04-015
