10 December update from Jisc on Internet disruptions

Jisc have provided a further update on 10 December on the recent disruptions to the Internet via the Janet network:

Media statement following recent DDoS attacks.

As you may be aware we have been subject to a series of DDoS attacks which have affected internet access for our customers.

The blocks which have been put in place to stop the attacks are working effectively and there has been no impact to customers since Tuesday at 14:00, despite further attacks being attempted.

As part of an ongoing investigation into the cause of the attacks we are working with various enforcement agencies.

Our network and security teams continue to work hard to minimise any impact to our customers. Long term we are already reviewing and improving our systems so that we can reduce the impact of any future attempts on service delivery for our customers.

This update follows earlier announcements on Tuesday 8 and Wednesday 9 December 2015.
