Realtor.com hit with DDoS attack.

by Greg Robertson on June 19th, 2014

Move, Inc. Reports a Distributed Denial of Service Attack

“The attack directs massive amounts of traffic to our websites and makes realtor.com®, Top Producer® Systems, and Move’s other Internet services inaccessible. Move operates realtor.com®, the official website of the National Association of REALTORS®.

This can happen to anyone. As a business owner that relies on the internet to generate revenue it’s something I worry about everyday. I can only imagine the stress their tech teams have been under. I hope they are able to resolve this soon.

    A well designed IT and data center infrastructure would mitigate/eliminate a DDOS. Attackers find the weak and go after them with a vengeance.

    You should plan for this now so you don’t have to worry about it at all. If you wait until it happens, it takes a while to get it under control.

    Look at Incapsula, Prolexic or BlackLotus. Rackspace and many other hosts have options, too.

    It’s hard to have sympathy for a large site or SaaS company that hasn’t planned for this.

    They used Prolexic and the site is back up now.
