RE: UUNet outage?
- From: Vandy Hamidi

I noticed unavailability of some sites through our UUNet connection as well.
Trace routes showed that the packets were being dropped after it was passed
onto above.net but also before that. I assume not only was above.net having
problems, but I screwed up UUNet's routes they received from them.
A call to UUNet didn't help. The tech, though nice, had no idea what to
look for. I was sitting there giving him commands and asking the result.
After I figured everything was ok between us, I figured it was bigger than
just my connection and waited patiently.
All was good within 15 min or less.

Subject: Re: uunet outage?
I have been noticing several UUNet problems recently. My Oakland office
(connected via UUNet) and my company's service bureau, run by a
contractor company (also UUNet) had problems seeing my main corp. web
server colo'd at Hurricane Electric, yesterday. Turns out there was a
DoS attack ran against a router on above.net (which provides the peering
between UUNet and HE).
However, I have also seen problems with customers being unable to see my
contractor's machines. Supposedly, there are some rather strategic DoS
attacks going on. Can anyone confirm this?
