Earlier today we received a DDoS attack on our DNS infrastructure specifically. This caused our message processing to crawl to a halt. We have made changes in our design to account for the attack pattern we encountered and this type of issue should not repeat itself. We would like apologize extensively during a week when we finalized big changes that had shown EXCELLENT metrics and alleviated issues we were experiencing with whitelists and processing delays.
Please rest assured these are not the same issues, but more a bout of terrible timing. As always we will continue to make changes for the better to ensure that we continue to improve the services we deliver to you and your clients. We have resolved the issues, however we’re now encountering a massive back log we’re processing through.
