***Final Update @ 22:25*** DoS attack against campus Resident caused significant delays in accessing the Internet from on campus. It also caused network delays in accessing HSU services from off campus. The attack was mitigated by HSU's upstream ISP, CENIC around 22:15. ***UPDATE 21:53 - Cause Identified as a Denial of Service Attack (Dos). We are working to isolate and filter the traffic. *** Unknown at this time, will post more information as it becomes available.
