Update 2014-03-20: Our IP transit provider has provided additional information in relation to the service disruption yesterday.
– The attack was so intense it completely saturated their 10Gbps core switches.
– A 3rd party specialist firm was brought in to filter out the DDoS and let legitimate traffic through.
– The Dutch police are investigating with a view to prosecute the perpetrator of the attack.
– The customer who the attack was targeting are being moved to a segregated IP network so any potential reoccurances of the attack won’t affect our connectivity.
Update 15:12: Service has been fully restored.
