MYC Website Availability (November 24, 2014)

Barbie Stimpson

I received the message below and I'm passing it on to you in case you have noticed an interruption in MYC Website service.  Currently it appears that the website is available.  I'll publish final communications on the website when they become available.  If you have concerns or questions you can contact me at Barbie's email.  However, this is the only information I have at the current time.


Today (Monday, November 24, 2014) at approximately 4:00 PM Central time, MYC's Website Provider and Hosting Service noticed a huge increase in traffic hitting our servers. After a very short time, they both determined that this was a Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack. Thousands of hijacked computers around the world were being used to attack our servers to try and break in and steal data. Working together, they decided to take the ClubExpress servers completely offline for a short period of time. Once the hackers see that nothing is getting through, they should stop their DDOS attack. The servers are working fine and remain secure. There is no evidence whatsoever that any club data was compromised or accessed by these hackers. They will continue to monitor the situation closely and send out another email to MYC Administrators once they have an update. I apologize for the inconvenience but I hope you’ll understand that we’re taking this approach out of an excess of caution to protect our customers’ websites and data.
