One of our customer has been targeted by a large Denial of Service Attack this morning. It is affecting our network.
We are mitigating the issue and will provide an update shortly.
Update: 08:10: the mitigation is under way, service is improving but not fully restored
Update: 08:15: the attack is saturating many 10Gbps link of both peering and transit
Update: 08:20: customers should now able to use the net, performance may be affected while the DDOS continues
Update: 08:25: we are still seeing over 10Gbps of DDOS traffic incoming on each of our peering links in London
Update: 08:40: the DDOS is still ongoing
Update: 09:25: the attackers is using DNS amplification. Google DNS is currently the largest source of traffic, all traffic to Google may therefore be affected but other destination have been mitigated
Update: 10:10: At 09:45 Google changed how their traffic is reaching us and it may therefore affect other destination. The level of traffic is however lower and not affecting as many destinations.
Update: 14:00: The DDOS mitigation remain in place as we continue to see short attacks directed at the target customer
