NERO experienced a DDoS attack against one of its customers between
15:20 and 16:45 today.  The high-packet attack (>5Mpps) caused
significant congestion on one of NERO's transit links that customer
traffic across this path was impacted.  Customers would have noticed
slowness, packet loss, or delays reaching remote sites.  NERO has taken
steps to mitigate the attack and is working with the victim of the attack.
