What's up with London?
Dashboard however tells me everything is fine. But lish-london.linode.com is unavailable via ssh (SYN sent, no reply), and the various console options from linode manager don't work either. So something in London is definitely offline.
Update: Ok so there's apparently a DoS attack currently going on for London (and Dallas). The world needs a global task force to hunt those low-lifes responsible for that kind of thing.
Taken all my cpc offline to limit financial impact. Its not the end to our Boxing Day sale we'd hoped for. Happy New Year everyone.
Linode, will you do something with these attacks to prevent them in the future? Any ETA?
Can we hope for some sort of compensation for these outages?~~
We're not happy with the downtime ourselves, but at least for the moment we are inclined to wait it out - Linode competitors in the same price range are probably equally exposed to this type of attack, so likely not much gained by moving elsewhere.
