Eir email system suffers suspected attack
Up to 400,000 users affected as service hit with suspected DDOS attack
Eir’s email customers have been experiencing problems accessing their mail following a suspected Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack by hackers.
Ireland’s biggest telco has an estimated 400,000 email users, with @eircom.net addresses. The firm noticed an issue last Wednesday and began its mitigation process. A DDOS attack is a malicious attempt to make a server or a network resource unavailable to users, usually by temporarily interrupting or suspending the services of a host connected to the internet.
