Servers are having a hardware issue. They are being worked on and should be back soon.

 

We're backup and running.

 

Someone tried to take out our servers with a denial of service attack (not cool)

What is a denial service attack and why someone attack our servers...we only a handful peeps there hmm strange

 

A denial-of-service attack (DoS attack) or distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack) is an attempt to make a computer or network resource unavailable to its intended users. Although the means to carry out, motives for, and targets of a DoS attack may vary, it generally consists of the concerted efforts of a person, or multiple people to prevent an Internet site or service from functioning efficiently or at all, temporarily or indefinitely.
