A similar thing happened at a well know server hosting provider at approx 1am this morning, wonder if related... Hmm
At first I thought it was the updates I had just applied that killed the server then realised the host network was dead too.
About 30,000 customers of the Cheshire-based ISP Vispa were forced offline for almost 12 hours today by a DDOS attack traced to the Baltic state of Latvia. Broadband service has now been restored, a spokesman said, but customers are unable to call customer service because the firm's phone system was also crippled by the attack …
The staff were working remotely from home due to the bad weather; calls were being diverted via VOIP to the staff; when the system went down, the VOIP system couldn't work either.
Why the VOIP still isn't working, I do not know, do you?
I am guessing from the comment at the end, that you are the same tw@t who went posting around the net yesterday, that Vispa had gone bust.
No, I am not a Vispa employee, but I have used there service happily for a number of years; and have found their customer service far, FAR better than any major ISP I have had the misfortune to sign up with in the past.
