We have made adjustments to our systems in an attempt to mitigate the impact of the attack. It appears that those efforts are currently working and that the Dashboard and all systems are back up and running. We anticipate some hiccups throughout the afternoon, so please keep checking back for the latest updates.

This morning's DNS outage was caused by a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) cyber-attack that impacted numerous companies. It appears that there is a second attack occurring at the moment, which is causing issues with all Localytics systems. There is no risk of compromised customer or user data, but you will have issues accessing Localytics systems until we're able to mitigate the attack. We will have an update for you in a half hour.
