Yes, many websites are down due to the cyber attack threat on MoonFruit. Actually, MoonFruit is UK-based company that offers a free website builder along with website building services. But, this gaint also fell prey for Cyber Attacks. As it takes some time to resolve the problem, MoonFruit announced that all the websites and web services under its shelter will be unavailable for more than 12 hours, due to the DDOS attack. Let me give you the info about this type of Cyber attack. It is namely DDoS Attack: Distributed Denial Of Service, which leads to unpredicted data traffic rush-on to a website or webservice.
Actually, Attackers shudded the company’s computers to over-ride them with data traffic, so that they couldn’t serve its normal users on 10th December. MoonFruit is threatened by some unknowns, who allegedly compiled a DDoS attack on its services. However, MoonFruit assured their customers or clients literally,by helping and clarifying their problems about the MoonFruit Services. It also posted about the attack within 15 minutes, after conformation of the Cyber Attack.
However, within 10 hours MoonFruit took all protective and rejective measures to prevent the attacks again. And it safely started all of its services. Hopefully, all of its clients also felt happy about return of their services as usual and didn’t made it a big issue either. So, thus finally MoonFruit restored all of its services and now it is fully in and under control of the MoonFruit’s Company.
