The following is from a post on http://rutgersit.rutgers.edu. Further updates on the University’s network status will be posted to that site, to the RutgersIT Twitter feed, and to the RutgersIT Facebook page if new information becomes available.
At 9:10 AM on January 4, 2016, Rutgers started experiencing an intermittent DDoS attack, directed primarily at sakai.rutgers.edu. OIT is working with our provider on mitigation. Law enforcement has been notified. Users may experience difficulty accessing Sakai from outside of the Rutgers network until the problem is resolved.
We apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for your patience as we work through the issues.
