DDoS attack results in VA node temporarily offline

On Thursday, April 3, 2014 a DDoS attack resulted in an ISP outage for the Virginia (VA) node location. The issue resulting from the DDoS attack was resolved; however we are still experiencing routing issues with the VA node.

This impacts all Dotcom-Monitor users that have the VA monitoring location enabled. Users should note that the VA node is currently switched off to avoid any false positives to their account.

We expect the issue to be fully resolved by Tuesday, April 8, 2014.

Thank you for your patience as we work to restore the VA node after this DDoS attack.

At approximately 5am CST – Tuesday, April 8, 2014 – service at the Virginia (VA) monitoring location was fully restored. Users will note the VA monitoring location is re-enabled in their Dotcom-Monitor account.
