Bandwidth.com has been suffering DDoS attacks for the past 3 days nonstop.
Bandwidth.com is the newest victim of DDoS attacks, explicitly targeting voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services providers. According to sources, the attack against Bandwidth caused countrywide voice and message services outages. The attackers are yet unidentified.
The company referred to the attack as an ‘incident’ that affected its Voice and Messaging services, and customers were experiencing unexpected failures.
“Bandwidth is investigating an incident impacting Voice and Messaging Services. Calls and Messages may experience unexpected failures. All teams are actively engaged,” the company’s status page stated on Sep 26, 12:35 EDT.
While Bandwidth didn’t officially confirm that it has become a victim of a DDoS attack, its customer support staff is informing customers that a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack disrupted their services. For instance, a customer posted a screenshot on Reddit, which was sent to him by Bandwidth’s Technical Assistance Center manager that read:
“Bandwidth continues to experience a DDoS attack which is intermittently impacting our services. Our network operations and engineering teams continue active mitigation efforts to protect our network.”
