Dynadot: customer data was not impacted by the DDoS attack

Dynadot emailed customers saying that customer data was not impacted by the 150Gbps DDoS attack.

Although Dynadot had DDoS protection in place, it was not capable of blocking an attack of this size.

You can read the email here:

Dear …,

Yesterday the Dynadot website was hit with a 150Gbps DDoS attack. While we did have DDoS protection in place, it was not capable of blocking an attack of this size. Our team worked non-stop to mitigate the attack, and we have installed additional defenses against such attacks in the future.

I know many customers are concerned about their account security. I am happy to report that customer data was not impacted by this attack. Account security has been, and always will be, a top priority of ours. Additionally we will work on improving communication during service disruptions to make sure we keep you in the loop.

I am very sorry this happened, and I know it was extremely inconvenient. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. We will continue to improve our systems and processes.

Best Regards,
Todd Han
