Numerous popular websites have been affected by a distributed denial of service attack – an action which floods a website with massive amounts of traffic making connections difficult or impossible. LiveStream, Colgate’s live web streaming service provider, has been impacted and other services may be affected as well. Most DDoS attacks resolve quickly but due to the widespread nature of this attack, we thought you should know. A DDoS doesn’t mean a site is down, just inaccessible, so hang in there! The Internet will be right back.
