The issue with the VPS platform has been resolved and it was due to a denial of service attack against the platform. We have worked closely with our mitigation service and transit provider to ensure this will not happen again.

We have also investigated with them why this incident did not get detected in the manner it should have been, and this was due to a configuration issue at their end. Assurances have been provided this has been rectified. In addition to this, we are looking more closely at network level to see what further and additional protection could be put in place to further prevent this from occurring again.

Our apologies for the disruption this has caused.
