NERO experienced an aggressive DDoS attack that affected the NERO
backbone link from the Eugene Hub to Medford and Klamath Falls Hubs.
This attack would have affected all customers connected in Medford as
well as some traffic to Klamath Falls that would normally traverse that

The attack was short but aggressive.  We are evaluating the sources
involved in the attack and will decide later how to proceed with
mitigation in case of future attacks.
