Brief Slowdown Due to DOS

Good Morning Everyone,

This morning at 8:14 EDT, Membee’s data center experienced an attempted Denial of Service (DOS) attack,¬†where an attempt is made to render a site(s) inoperable by saturating a target IP address with communication requests. Thankfully the automated mitigation processes and firewalls did their job but for a few minutes, you may have found Membee extremely slow as your legitimate traffic had to fight its way through all the illegitimate traffic.

Everything returned to normal a few minutes later and as is the normal practice in these situations, how the systems responded to the attack will be analyzed to insure optimal performance.

As always, we wanted to keep you in the “loop”.
