Just a quick note to those of you were trying to log on today. At about 11:30 eastern Axiom was wiped out by an extremely targeted DDoS. At its peak, over 9,000 computers in a botnet were trying to access the site simultaneously, generating over thousands of hits per second.
Although nothing was compromised on our servers, we couldn't ban enough IPs to keep the server responding to regular human visitors. The rotation velocity was too much to take the IP banning approach.
We're investigating further but the site should hold now. Wanted to give you the update.
