Telstra DNS infrastructure targeted by denial-of-service attack – Security – Telco/ISP

Telstra’s domain title servers had been strike by a denial-of-services assault on Sunday, producing common online connectivity troubles for consumers, largely on the east coastline.

The telco stated in a statement on Twitter that some of its DNS infrastructure was focused by a “cyber assault, acknowledged as a denial of services (DoS)”.

“We’re blocking the malicious website traffic attacking some of our services,” it stated in a separate statement just following midday AEST.

“We are assured we have blocked all of this malicious website traffic and are operating to get you again up and functioning once again.”

Shoppers that switched their DNS to the likes of Google’s 8.8.8.8 had been capable to solve web site addresses.

The challenges – and assault – appeared to begin just following 10.30am AEST, and affected both equally fixed-line and mobile buyers.
