Cayan Merchant Services & the Recent DDoS Attack
Many internet services have experienced an outage today due to a Distributed Denial of Service attack, or DDoS attack, on Dyn, a major DNS provider for those services. Dyn helps to route traffic on the internet and as a result of the attack, that traffic is not making it to the intended destination.
The services affected by this include Twitter, Spotify, Etsy, and a handful of other high traffic sites on the internet. Foremost among the affected people for ERPLY customers is Cayan Merchant Services, one of our payment processing partners.
Customers are experiencing service disruptions due reported by several 3rd party Internet Service Providers outside the Cayan network.
