As of Sunday, someone started to attack us. This is not your usual DDOS attack. Rather than using standard network flooding techniques, these guys are using email.
A normal day would see us receive about X million emails. Yesterday we received XX million. And if this keeps on it will be XXX million mails today alone. Because of the nature of their method it is very hard to counter without disrupting the service of customers.
We are working on a setup that will stop them and should have it under control in a few hours. Until then we will see an increase of spam and maybe some small delays, no serious delays beyond normal though. Obviously we do not like being under attack, but we are glad to see our system is coping pretty ok considering the beating its taking currently.
I am sorry for any inconvenience this means to you, and we will keep you up to date on the development.
