Catster Access Issues

This weekend, all of SAY Media's properties were taken down by what is called a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS). The tech team has been working nonstop to get everything back up and running, but it will take some time before we can expect the sites to run "normally." We are posting updates in the All Paws Bulletin Group when we are able to access Community areas of the sites.

    OK, I think we're in the clear. The sites have been working well for me today! =; There are a few 404 errors and some missing images that need to be addressed, but other than that… If you do notice something odd, other than the countless features that were broken before the DDoS attack, please send an email to Support. Have a great day everypawdy! |^|

    Maybe we should wait before we celebrate in case we get hit with the attacks again.

    Paws up! All of SAY Media's properties are under another DDoS attack. You may have some trouble accessing Catster today. The tech team is on it. :m

    I am STILL trying to get some technical support for the missing images and background on the Community areas of Dogster and Catster. I sent a second request to the tech team today. I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! |:|Community|:|
