I've just recieved an e-mail from our contact at the local council; confirmed this DoS attack and I quote: "These recent attacks appear to originate from approx. 40,000 households in Russia, due to their computers being infected with a Virus/Malware that was activated yesterday by the hacker"

We have some slow times but at no point have we had an actual drop out since the 15th...
20th March 2012, 02:06 PM #38
Apparently this should be fixed today.......

Do you know if this is leftovers from the ddos or is this a new and fun issue all of its own?

Unsure, just that is an issue they are looking to address today.

I've had some dropouts too - very brief ones but definitely there.
Download speeds are silly too - it is going to take 65mins to download a new wireless driver, apparently - yeah,right..
28th March 2012, 03:27 PM #42
Anyone had any dropouts within the last hour?
28th March 2012, 03:56 PM #43
Yeah - we have. Speed for us dropped to floor - we should be on 32Mbps, currently getting less that 3Mbps.
I have logged a call.

Yep "some people in the SWG area are having connectivity problems" according to someone @ SWGFL. We had slow internet from 14:20 to 14:40 but all seems ok now.

It won't help anyone with this issue, but did you know you can get text message alerts from SWGfL?
I didn't until I last rang to rant about speed/connectivity issues. I received a text at about 2.20pm today making me aware of the issue - quite a useful service.
