Outages, Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 August 2011

Postby admin » 14 Aug 2011, 3:30pm

Many apologies for the outages during the afternoon of Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 August. Saturday's outage was caused by a software problem in the Intrusion Prevention System on the network the CTC Forum's server is on. Sunday's outage was caused by a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack on the network - the sort of thing the IPS is designed to prevent.

Both outages were caused by network problems, the Forum server was up and running throughout.
