Denial of service attack

By on June 6, 2011

Over the last 12 hours Bitbucket has been subject to a distributed denial of service attack, intermittently making Bitbucket unavailable. Working with our data center, we have placed a block at our network provider which has relieved the attack.

If you experienced a disruption of service during this period, we apologize for any inconvenience.

    I have tried several times over the span of a couple of weeks to email either sale or support @ bitbucket.org. These always bounce. How can I communicate with someone in sales or support? I have some pre-sale questions I need to have answered before I can sign up and pay.
    Thanks for any help.

      I’m really troubled to hear that.

      Can you please email me directly? Could you also include the bounced email details?

      No.  We monitor Bitbucket all over the world and we haven’t had any recent recent downtime.
