At approximately 10:30 AM PST we experienced a momentary load spike, resulting in several websites being slow to respond or timing out.
Upon investigation, it appeared to be a bot trying to gain unauthorized access to the primary server. Security measures and automated attack mitigation services picked up around 10:35 AM PST and traffic slowly died down to normal levels by 11:00 AM PST. We will continue to closely monitor our infrastructure for any further problems.
No data was lost and there was no unauthorized access granted. Services are running smoothly again.
