Monitoring - The attacks have not stopped yet and our Network Engineers are still actively mitigating the DDoS attacks. However, the status of the network has improved significantly, and customers who are not in the affected ranges should now be stable. If you are still experiencing connectivity issues or have a Linode in one of the affected ranges, please reach out to our Customer Support Team for assistance in obtaining an additional IP address as a temporary workaround.
