"On Monday night, we had a DDoS against our London 3 site causing widespread outaging into the early hours.
As a result, the datacentre powered down a number of servers to try to alleviate the scale of the attack. But it continued into Tuesday until their network operations staff built suitable filters to clamp the incoming traffic.
Two out of nine of our UK servers are still offline with corrupted filesystems and our engineers are trying to recover as much data as possible. Unfortunately the datacentre pulled the power to the servers rather than the expected method which is to disconnect the ethernet connection.
We will continue to recover what we can from those two servers and make it availble to you. However in the interim, I recommend that we get fresh VPS's setup for you so you can restore from your most recent backup.
UNFORTUNATELY I BELIEVE THAT IS THE STUPIDEST THING I'VE HEARD ALL YEAR !!!
