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
I purchased the 105 Formula Questions.
I'm looking to clarify the answer to question No.73. The answer given is A) 486,300. When I calculate using the correct formulas I get an answer of CPI = 240,000 / 253,700 = 0.9459. Is this ratio that added to the nearest decimal point, i.e. 0.95 ??
Using the answers ratio of 0.946 EAC = 700,000 / 0.946 = 739,957.716
• ETC = EAC – AC = 739,958 – 253,700 = 486,258
If you round off 0.946 to 0.95 you get EAC = 700,000 / 0.95 = 736,842,10
• ETC = EAC – AC = 736,842 – 253,700 = 483,142

Regards
Damien

Hi Damien,

I didn't have the question so I took the long route but basically if you use CPI with more decimal places the answer works out. As you noticed rounding the CPI up even one decimal place makes a fairly large difference in the final answer.

You mentioned CPI = 240,000 / 253.700 so that tells me the question gives you the EV as 240,000 and AC as 253,700
You mentioned EAC = 700,000 / CPI which tells me that the question gives you BAC as 700,000
(I now know I didn't need to do that :P )

CPI = 240,000 / 253,700 = 0.945945945
EAC = BAC / CPI => 700,000 / 0.945945945 => 740,000.00074
ETC = EAC - AC => 740,000.00074 - 253,700 => 486,300.00074 => 486,300
