Clara.nets ADSL Upgrade & DoS Attack
By: MarkJ - 08 November, 2003 (9:26 AM)

Some good and bad news from UK ISP Clara.net. One of the ISPs customer servers has been hit by a 'Denial of Service' (DOS) attack causing problems, while a central pipe upgrade is set to bring ADSL customers more capacity:

DoS Attack News:
Due to a DOS attack on a customer server, hosted and transit customers at Redbus Harbour Exchange may have seen a loss of connectivity or severely lagged connections over the past hour. Full connectivity should now be restored. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

ADSL Upgrade News:
After approximately 9:30am on Monday 10th November, ADSL customers who authenticate using the realm adsl-2.uk.clara.net will be presented to us over a new central pipe between Claranet and BT which will give us more capacity to the BT network and greater administrative control over the routing in order to provide services such as ISDN failover.

The migration should be invisible to customers and requires no settings changes at the customer end.
