This evening at approximately 10:43 PM Central Time on 3/14/2011, our Phoenix facility experienced a brief DDoS attack taking down a small portion of our inbound traffic.
When the attack began, our network engineering team immediately implemented our DDoS recovery Standard Operating Procedures (SOP). These procedures include:
a) investigating the nature and type of the attack;
b) communicating with our upstream providers in an effort to thwart the attack; and
c) implementing network routing rules and other preventative measures within our infrastructure.
The attack lasted approximately 5 minutes and has been resolved.
