Status Report: Service Status
We're seeing performance issues, that may be caused by a targeted DDOS attack, on 1 specific server (Gimli).
Our alert system warned about this in the very early stages and we are focussed on identifying cause/the attacker(s) and filtering the traffic as soon as possible.
We apologise for the inconvenience that this may cause and if there are any questions, please contact our technical support team.
The issue seems to be more difficult to tackle than expected.
We're working hard to get this server back to its normal performance asap
The server is back to its perfect performance again.
Our apologies that it took a little longer than we all hoped it would do.
We will also plan to move the current sites away from this hardware and datacentre, as these seem to have been the issue, but we'll notify the users of this server before we do so.
