Exclamation DDoS attack

Today the network was under a DDoS attack, so you may have had difficulties accessing our site.

I am not sure if the problem is fully solved, but there are techs working on it to fix any future problem related to this as soon as possible.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Regards

That's a neat way around a DDoS attack. Good thought.

What is a DDoS attack? (You see what happens if you want the tech-illiterate to contribute - you have to attend to questions such as these)

It is a way hackers use to make a public web site or server inaccessible. Very nasty. You can read more about it here:
