Service Disruption – Now resolved

Yesterday WebEden suffered a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack from unknown parties. We were flooded by an attack on one of our sites with 75% of all incoming traffic from over 2,300 IPs, which caused all traffic to be congested and page load times to be affected.

This DDoS overloaded our firewalls.

This meant that some customer sites became very slow.

We quickly responded and our engineers managed to dynamically block this content. This resolved the issue by around midday on 25th June.
