Back online

July 31, 2007

We regret the recent downtime we had with CoReap.

Apparently, our server came under fire from a reasonably large DDOS attack. Although we had setup a decent blanket of firewall protection, rootkit protection and even DDOS detection, but within a few hours of the attack the server started crawling down. We had to reboot it a few times in between. Once that got resolved, our host had trouble with the NOC over a different issue, and we had to face the brunt once again.

Well, one thing is for sure, we aim at operating a professional, reliable and long-term service for our users. And in that course, we will only partner with organizations who share our vision and provide a professional service. Looking at what happended in the past 2-3 days, we are really disappointed with our current host, and we plan to migrate our application to a different host very soon. This server migration process won’t bear any downtime, and we hope to keep it smooth & transparent for our end-users.

We again apologise to all our users for this unforeseen downtime, and promise to keep things stable.
