Network issues on 22 Nov.

We have by now analyzed the network issues on 22 November.

On Friday, 22 November, we experienced multiple network issues. An institute's homepage, which is operated on the IT-Services webserver had not been checked for security gaps for some time. As a consequence hackers were able to attack the system and launch an Denial of Service Attack (DoS-Attack).

The IT-Services are working on finding solutions in order to prevent such attacks in the future. As part of this, the IT-Services are asking all operators of services that are accessible via the network to regularly check their service for security gaps and to install the relevant updates.
