Unplanned: mx1.spameater.co.nz outage – Resolved

*Risk / Impact*



At 7:58am, our primary spam filter piranha/mx1 stopped processing email.

*Description / Impact Expected*

Due to a firewall DDos rule, traffic was halted on the primary spam filter due to a large influx of traffic. The DDos rules prevented additional connections being accepted. Mail should have been automatically delivered to the secondary spam filter.


7:58am – 9:30am


DDos filters were disabled on this host temporarily until we find a permanent solution.
