Just a quick update on our status. Starting Saturday April 25th at 12:00pm CST MediaFire came under attack by a large Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack that denied services for some customers. The DDoS attack is utilizing over 40,000 70,000* separate computers continuously sending valid requests to MediaFire’s servers in an attempt to overload our systems. We have been able to mitigate the attack without any lasting damage but the attack is still ongoing.
There was no data loss or lasting disruption to the MediaFire free or Pro services. Thanks again to everyone who submitted support tickets notifying us of the issue and for your patience while we deal with this ongoing attack.
