At approximately 9:30 PM tonight, an IP in our network was the target of a massive Distributed Denial of Service attack. We were alerted to the attack and blocked it at our edge quickly, but the size of the attack was large enough to congest some of our upstream network connections. This would have resulted in limited or poor connectivity to most Internet sites. This persisted for another 5-10 minutes as we were isolating the affected upstream providers and beginning to contact them to have them block the DoS in their network, however, the DoS stopped before that was necessary.
At this time the network appears normal, and we have taken steps to prevent the DoS target from being attacked again. We apologize for this network interruption.
