DNS flood washes over company servers
By John Leyden, 9 May 2014
Domain hosts Point DNS has been hammered with a high intensity DDoS attack on Friday, knocking servers out for hours.
The size of the attack and techniques used - much less who might be behind the attack - remains unclear. Several Reg readers got in touch to notify us about the issue and the company confirmed the attack online.
"We're experiencing a DDoS attack on all DNS servers we are working hard mitigate the attack," Point DNS said in a update to its Twitter profile. "We're still working through a massive DDoS. We're adding more nameservers and working with our network providers," it added.
