We are investigating the crash of the BGP process on one of our core routers in Williams House, Manchester.

Timeline (most recent first)
  • 2019-10-01

    We have deployed the control plane protections as planned.

  • 2019-09-29

    We have put in place numerous corrective actions: put in place workarounds, put in place a failsafe workaround, submitted bug reports to the vendor, and we have been monitoring the router since. We will also be establishing some additional control plane protections as we suspect a targetted attack may have been involved earlier today.
