International Transit Outage / DDOS Attack
Incident Report for AoNet Broadband
Internet Outage 8:27 PM - 8:24 PM tonight (19/09/18)

We would like to apologize for a brief interruption to your internet service tonight between 8:27 PM and 8:34 PM.

Our engineering teams and our carriers engineers have been investigating this issue as a priority.

This was a result of one of our AoNet broadband customers being the subject of a DDOS attack. Where an additional 8 Gbit of DDOS (internet traffic) was directed at our network.

This unfortunately caused some loss on our international links while the attack was underway.

We will be speaking with the customer who attracted the DDOS attack to ensure it does not happen again.
