Large DDoS [08/11/2010]

Earlier this evening Spitfire came under a very large DDoS forcing the IP being attacked to be null routed due to it causing network degradation issues for our upstream provider. As a result we're in the midst of migrating affected shared clients to new IPs - we expect this to be finished shortly however depending on DNS changes it can take a few hours for it to fully resolve for you.

We're extremely sorry for the inconvenience and are working on bringing everyone affected online ASAP. If you have a dedicated IP or are on an alternate IP or are on an alternate shared IP your website is online. This only affects a portion of users on the server..

Just some information - it appears the DDoS was in excess of 10Gbit prior to the null routing of the IP.

We experienced a very large DDoS in the early morning which lasted for roughly 50 minutes. We've been able to find the target and remove them from the machine so these attacks should stop entirely. The total attack size was roughly 30Gigs.

We'll be monitoring the server for the next 24 hours as well as working with the data center to ensure everything is back to normal. We're very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
