Incident status: identified, in remedy

The TU Wien has been affected by some denial-of-service attacks yesterday and the day before yesterday, which were detected by our firewall and prevented according to given security rules. However, due to the amount of data involved in the attack, there were limitations in the performance of the Internet access. We are currently adapting these rules in order to be able to react automatically to this type of attack in the future without any loss of performance.
