Is it just me or are the Orcon DNS servers (121.98.0.1, 121.98.0.2) offline at the moment?
I've change to 8.8.8.8 and everything is working fine again.

Cheers

Our systems team are aware of it, looks like a dos attack is going on.

Yeah, I had the same problem (and solution). I noticed the same thing not long ago as well. How do both the primary and secondary servers die at the same time? That's pretty poor design if that happens... Maybe I'll just put Google's as the secondary.

DNS queries may be a bit slower we have failed auckland to wellington for the moment while we stop this attack.

michaelmurfy: Who has Orcon annoyed lately for this to occur?


Who knows, it comes and goes in waves.
The last one was a lot of addresses from china, this one isnt...

One thing is sure, DNS traffic has picked up significantly in the past 3 weeks.

Probably the same people as Emirates Team NZ, the issue started around the same time as Race 8 went to custard :-)

Don't forget to change back, otherwise your Youtube, Akamai content will come from strange places.

They get attacked at the same time?

That's fair enough to some extent - I hadn't considered an attack at the time. However, one would think such a vital part of the service would be better protected against DoS attacks.

We do what we can with the resources we have.
