Entry written by Thomas Kristensen.

On Thursday 25th November at 00:40AM CET the authoritative DNS hosting was redirected for 1 hour 10 minutes.

This has resulted in traffic temporarily being redirected to a non-Secunia site.

Due to standard DNS caching at some Internet Service Providers, some users may still be redirected.

The incident is currently being investigated and we will update our blog with relevant information.

Customers may contact our Customer Support Center at or call +45 7020 5144 with any questions.

Update 26th November: Our preliminary investigations have been concluded. We've been working with our registrar provider, DirectNIC, to identify the cause of the incident, during which we've learned that some other DirectNIC customers were affected by yesterdays attack and they all suffered a temporary redirection of traffic.

The confidentiality of customer / end-user data in the Secunia solutions (including Secunia CSI and Secunia PSI) was not compromised during the incident.

Kind regards,

Thomas Kristensen

Was unable to connect to user interface yesterday. Referred to this forum by Secunia Support today.

My system appears to be now working normally on W-XP laptop. I shall now confirm that the same applies to my W-W7 laptop.
