Approx 30 mins ago a Distributed Denial of Service attack was aimed at one of our colo customers. The NOC quickly identified and blocked the DDoS, but the attack ramped up to over 700 Mbps for several minutes. This traffic congested one of our transit links for 5-10 minutes, possibly causing poor performance or loss of connectivity to some sites on the Internet. As we were contacting the congested transit provider to have them put in a block, the DDoS ceased.
Our internal network remains sound, and we are continuing to monitor the network for any further disruptions.
