Network Solutions Outage Blamed on Hacking

Network Solutions says a hacking attack is causing service disruptions that are affecting its DNS and website customers.

The company says it’s facing a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack in which hackers direct thousands of computers to access a website all at once. The fake traffic makes it difficult for legitimate visitors to get through.

If your domain uses Network Solutions DNS servers, visitors may not be able to connect to your web site or send you email even if you are hosted elsewhere. Most Dynamic customers user our DNS services – even if they registered their domain through Network Solutions – and are not affected by this outage.
