One of our DNS partners – DNS Made Easy sent us this Email today about a large denial of service (DoS) attack that occurred on 8/7/2010. The attack started at 8:00UTC and was mitigated by 14:00UTC. While we received no complaints but since this outage may have affected the dns resolution for a small number of our clients we wanted to make this information available in a timely manner to all of our clients via our Service Status category here on Managedsolutions.com. If you have any questions about this issue please contact us.
