Status Update: DDoS Resolved – Infrastructure Migration Finishing

Update: As of 7pm Friday Jul 20 systems are humming along faster than ever.  Systems have been stable since Sunday the 15th.  There was an issue with shortened links starting Thurs the 19th but those should be resolved now.

Status Update:

This is a followup to the Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack that began in the afternoon of Wednesday July 11th.  As we mentioned in our previous post, we have migrated infrastructure providers and Jobscore is now hardened against future DDoS attacks.

As a result of the migration, Jobscore has had to re-distribute its back-end infrastructure.  We worked overnight and unfortunately there was some down time during the day today.  

Issues Resolved:

  • OpenID/Google Account Logins were temporarily down due to the infrastructure switch:  OpenID/Google Account Logins we’re restored as of 7am, Fri Jul 13
  • System Slowdown on Fri Jul 13, 2am-7am.  We experienced some slowdowns and email delivery delays due to infrastructure changes made to handle the DDoS.
  • Down for 20mins from 1pm to 1:24pm while deploying queue management changes to match the new infrastructure.

Jobscore has less downtime in the last five years than it has in the last 5 days, and we’re committed to making sure this doesn’t happen again. 

We hope that’s it for now.  

Planned Downtime: Our last planned downtime due to the migration will occur on Saturday July 14th at 4pm for approximately 10 minutes.

Thank you for your patience and support during the DDoS attack.
