[December 31 2015] Outage because of a DDoS attack

Linode, the company hosting our VPS systems, is currently experiencing a heavy DDoS attack. This is resulting in some of our VPS being slow or even temporarily unavailable. We will post new updates in this forum thread.

The DDoS attack has been stopped and our services are operational again. Linode shares some additional information about the attacks of the last few weeks.

We are noticing some minor improvements in our VPS uptimes but the issue has not been fully resolved. Linode has updated their status and is reporting continued attacks.

We are still experiencing outages across all VPS platforms. A solution has not yet been implemented.
