NationBuilder experienced a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack today, resulting in a full service outage from 11:54am to 2:07pm PT. These attacks did not compromise any of your data or financial information. The attack was related to Britain’s upcoming referendum next week on whether to remain a part of the European Union.
NationBuilder is designed to handle severe DDoS attacks, but this one overwhelmed our defenses and we are very sorry to let everyone down. This isn’t something we can make up for, but we will be issuing customers a credit equivalent to one day of service.
We exist to provide the fundamental infrastructure for democracy. It is not easy, but we will do whatever it takes to fulfill that mission.
NationBuilder Founder and CEO
