DDOS Attack

Starting at approximately 4:30PM ET Nettica DNS servers came under a distributed denial of service attack (DDOS). This lasted approximately one hour, with intermittent problems afterwards. This attack was very large (>15,000 unique addresses). We have been in constant contact with our upstream providers and are working diligently to address the issue. Please note that we may not respond to each email individually regarding this issue. Please check back here and on the website for additional details.
