Network problems due to a directed attack

22 April 2010

Starting at around 22:30 GMT on April 21st and until 15:30 today, FRISK Software International became the target of a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack. As a result, our visitors and customers have in many cases been unable to access our website, forum and support center. At some level this has also had a considerable effect on product and virus definitions updates as well as e-mail communications.

The threat has now been diverted and our servers are regaining their Internet presence. Please note that due to hardware upgrades and further work in effectively securing our systems against attacks like these, brief network interruptions may still occur for the next few hours.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by these network problems.

We will do our best to provide prompt response to all inqueries received. During the attack, the network interruptions have possibly affected the delivery of e-mail messages. If you did try to contact us but have not received any reply, we recommend that you resend your message to us.
