Up and Down - 9/5/15

Postby Lance » Sat Sep 05, 2015 7:46 pm

Apparently the hosting company that provides services for IRU has been experiencing a Denial of Service (DDoS) attack. Because of this, the actual server that hosts IRU has occasionally been unreachable throughout the day.

They're working on getting it resolved once and for all but we may continue to see sporadic outages.

There was an hour or two of outage that just ended - about 17:30 (or earlier) - 8:50 CEST

Yeah, I saw. They supposedly gave us a dedicated IP address so hopefully it won't happen again. They are still experiencing the attack though.

Shortly after my last post, it winked out again for two hours or so.
