New Announcement:

Dear Everyone,

Our apologies for the repeated outages today. It turned out our router problems _were_ caused by a DDOS (distributed denial of service) attack aimed at a site we hosted (note past tense). It was a pretty massive attack, more than doubling the amount of inbound traffic we normally receive.

As a result, our routers were overwhelmed. Due to the nature of the attack and the circumstances surrounding it, we were not able to immediately trace down the cause of the problems. We have now blocked the target’s IP address and are keeping a close eye on our inbound traffic so that we can act quickly to prevent this from impacting customers any further.

We are also in the process of adding new routers and upgrading our existing routers to provide more capacity so that in the future such attacks will be easier to withstand – so that we are better able to react to similar attacks and take action before wide-scale problems develop. Due to the unprecedented scale of this particular attack, we were caught unprepared and for that we apologize.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at
support (at) dreamhost.com or via the web panel. Due to the large amount of correspondence we have received from customers we are experiencing heavy support loads, but we will try to get back to you as soon as we possibly can.

Sincerely,

The DreamHost Distributed-Denial-of-Sleep-Team
