We would like to take the opportunity to make a statement about the network disruption today, between 12:15 and 12:45.
The cause of the reduction in reachability was a DDoS attack against our network which began at 12:15. This attack was so large that our infrastructure was overloaded for a time and this had an effect on the reachability of our servers and related services.
The measures we took to combat the attack took effect at about 12:45 and the disruption ended at that time.
We regret this incident very much and apologise for any inconvenience it may have caused you.
