SPAM and Latency

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 8:40 am

Partners,

We have had some questions regarding a slight increase in SPAM emails and to a certain extent, latency. We have been making multiple hardware and software changes to mitigate the increase that has come into the system world wide. This increase of mail/junk flow is largely due to the cPanel hack that infected thousands of servers with malware.
We have made it our top priority to monitor these large waves to ensure they’re mitigated in a timely fashion. We believe that the majority of these issues have been addressed by the changes we have made accross the system. If the issues continue to arise, please rest assured that we are monitoring this and have it our top priority to mitigate.

If you’d like to read further on the root of problem here are a couple of links.
