Our Website got Attacked Today!

At about 13:00 UTC today all our web-servers crashed due to a Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack on the website. This attack (by an unknown group of hackers) caused the maximum allowed users to spike beyond what the system could handle. All three servers crashed and the message "Service Unavailable" was displayed.

We contacted our hosting company via phone right away and worked with them to restore the service. Now it was determined that it wasn't just the webservers that went down but unfortunately, the crash snowballed and took down the database servers as well.

Website service was restored again around 16:15 UTC.

We apologize for any inconvenience this attack may have caused you.

Hi All,

I have passed the PMP exam today. Got Moderately Proficient in all the 5 domains, at the end of the day still it is a pass & a PMP :)

I got nearly 20 formula questions, asking to calculate EV, CPI.....

Around 20 questions asking about what the the Project Manager will do if a request comes during execution, if it is a simple request still need to go thru change control......

I got 1 or 2 questions on ITTO. I have marked around 10 to 15 questions and had about 12 mins to review.

Thanks to Cornellius & others for the valuable advice & suggestions.

Congratulations Palaniappan.

I would recommend that you take the extra mile to identify the areas that you can improve in, but of course this comes after celebrating your PMP ;)
