This evening between 2058 and 2146 the EOU/La Grande Hub and connected
customers were unreachable.  The root cause was found to be a
compromised host on the EOU campus network that was transmitting traffic
at a rate high enough to effectively lock up the access router on the
site (evidence indicates it was receiving approximately 120K packets per

Traffic and services have been returned to normal.  The offending host
has been removed from the network for analysis.
