DCN1 DCN1 - Network Incident


Traffic levels remain normal, and mitigation remains in place. We will notify you immediately should any further incidents occur.

Thank you for your patience in this matter.

Our monitoring systems have alerted us to an issue affecting our core network at DCN1 -- this was due a DDoS attack on on our network. Traffic for the affected subnet has been redirected to a DDoS scrubbing centre and traffic levels have returned to normal.

The affected subnet will remain under mitigation for 24-48 hours depending on volumes of attack traffic.

CWCS apologise for inconvenience this may have caused.

We will provide further updates regarding this incident should they become necessary.
