We’re Back: Subscriptions and Website
1/21/14 Update: Here are more details about yesterday’s outage. Yesterday our site was under a Denial of Service attack.That means bad guys were trying to take down our site. The attackers pointed a massive amount of traffic at our site, causing everything to slow to a crawl. We’d like to make sure you know that no data was compromised in any way. To resolve the issue, we have fine-tuned our firewall so that they cannot attack this way again.
1/20/14 Update: Our subscriptions and website are now back. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update this blog post when we know more information about why this happened and steps to help prevent this in the future.
In the meantime: a huge thanks to employees who had planned to have the day off for MLK but instead came in to make sure all teachers and students can have access before school resumes again tomorrow.
