we have experience a heavy DOS attack early this morning at approximately 8:30 EST. This attack has by far been the largest that we have seen. It affected many other web sites sharing the same co-location facility along with easyDNS. Core systems are now functioning normally. Some subscribers may still have difficulty reaching our home […]
Inbound smtp traffic and mail forwarding are online and have been for some time. We do apologize for the late status update.
At approximately 7:15 AM, all services began functioning in optimum capacity. We do apologize for any inconvenience.
The easyDNS members website, nameservers ns1 and ns2 and web forwarding are back online. At the moment inbound smtp traffic and mail forwarding are offline. No mail will be lost as a result of this, remote servers will defer delivery to us for later retries. We hope to have things restored as soon as possible.
We’ve been under Denial of Service Attack since 4am EST. All core systems are down except nameservers remote1 and remote3. We are working together with data center personal on the issue.
We have increased our mail queues to 10 days from 5 days in response to Hurricane Katrina in hopes that it may allow those affected the opportunity to maintain the integrity of their operations. Our deepest concerns go out to those affected. easyDNS.
