FPB Statement About Internet Issues on January 5

Last night (January 5, 2016), FPB received several complaints regarding intermittent Internet problems.  Between the hours of 8pm and 2am, FPB suffered 5 separate Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks.  FPB is evaluating additional network improvements to minimize the impact of these attacks in the future.

Denial-of-Service (DoS) Attacks - are created when an attacker floods a target with a high volume of unrequested Internet traffic intended to overload the computing hardware and/or network capacity of the target.
