We're weathering the incoming floods much more gracefully now and a full mitigation will be in place as soon as DNS propagation completes. Resolving for now!

We've tuned the backend that was bearing the brunt of the attack to attempt to mitigate the incoming floods of bogus traffic and are monitoring the efficacy of our measures.

We've configured the redirect from python.org => www.python.org to take affect at the CDN edge rather than our backend servers. This should reduce the impact of trivial DoS floods, but will take up to 24 hours to propagate. We're monitoring and tuning our backends to try to reduce the impact in the interim.

We are working to mitigate a Denial of Service attack against our infrastructure, sites hosted on the target are currently experiencing intermittent outages.

This incident affected: python.org (python.org - CDN), docs.python.org (docs.python.org - Backends), and us.pycon.org.
