Please be aware of an external technical issue that is preventing access to some popular Internet sites and services (Twitter, Netflix and others), and by association, some Ithaca College services. The problem is due to a DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack against a company called Dyn, Inc., which is a large Internet service provider. The problem started early this morning and has continued intermittently throughout the day. The outage is not related to any services managed by Ithaca College or our Internet service provider. However, it is affecting some Ithaca College systems that communicate with external sites, such as HR’s PeopleAdmin system and the Qualtrics survey tool. We are monitoring our network for any other impacts. Here are some external resources that provide additional information about the situation:
