Major Problems in network connectivity to D-ITET Servers

STATUS: Status/green.gif

2015-05-14: 08:00
  • We are experiencing major networking problems to and from D-ITET servers causing disturbance to logins, webservice and mail. We have informed ID networking team about the issues.

2015-05-15: 13:55
  • We have analyzed the affected system and found the break in which was used to mount a denial of service. Firewalls at the D-ITET network boundaries detected the anomal traffic and started to drop SYN packages. During this time there was only a ~0.5% success probability to create a new TCP connection from D-ITET network to outside, causing the disturbance to all services.
