My Dallas-based server, Orbit/The Planet, was attacked last night around 11:30 pm eastern. HE was immediately shut down by this. The problem was fixed sometime in the wee hours, new DNS coding was assigned to all the clients, and it has taken a while for the new DNS to propagate. HE was viewable earlier this morning in both Virginia and Los Angeles, but it didn’t return to my neck of the woods until about 10:50 am eastern. It was still down in Austin, Texas, a few minutes ago. To guard against any further HE wipeouts due to catastrophic attacks, I purchased the services of a secondary DNS server based in Manchester, NH.
