At this point we are still working on stopping the ongoing attack.

This was a distributed denial of service attack on a specific IP address where the attackers sent packets with dirty data that caused problems all the way to the core routers.

We still have more work to do. We will send a detailed explanation once the attack has been stopped and we can fully articulate everything that has occurred today.

Thank you for your continuing patience and understanding. We will be in touch soon.

The tier 1 fiber company is currently in a live conference call with security engineers from Cisco, trying to identify and determine a method to stop the Denial of Service Attack. The attack goes all the way up to the third set of routers. They have never seen this level of attack before, nor could any redundancy have prevented the disruption of service we are experiencing.
