Any update on this?  Thanks.

Nothing to update. The attacks were absorbed and ended.

First thing I did was go to the twitter channel.  I did not see anything so I opened a ticket.

 

I think it is better to announce it there. 

It's only affecting a very extremely tiny subset of clients - so I didn't want to get everybody concerned about it unless the attack gets to the point that we can't manage it or have to take drastic steps.

 

To be completely straightforward - these attacks aren't big enough to take anything we have offline - but our facility is proactively trying to protect us.  I've asked that they stop doing this [stop null-routing IPs] which will result in things staying online.

 

If the attack does get to the point that our infrastructure can't handle it - we do have other options available to us other than de-routing IPs and we'll use those first.

 

It's been a LONG time since we've had any DDoS attacks much less of this magnitude and our infrastructure has changed substantially since the last time so our facility is doing their best to protect us and is being a bit ... too overprotective :).

For clarity there is a lot of detail I am not providing here in this thread due to the nature of the attacks - but we are aware of them and working to resolve them as they change and adapt.

It's definitely interesting.  We're planning on having everybody upgraded - our whole network - within 30 days barring anything unexpected.

Hardware acceleration is on the networking for our storage so it helps everything. S1, P1, R1 are on the upgraded processors so far.
