This morning, a widespread internet Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack resulted in the degradation of a number of internet services, including Twitter, Netflix, Zendesk, PayPal, Amazon Web Services, Box and many others. The attack originated on DYN, our DNS provider, and has since spread to other services as well, resulting in an unprecedented scale of performance degradation across the web.

Box's engineering, networking, and operations teams have been working nonstop to resume accessibility to Box by changing DNS and other network providers. This process is still ongoing, but we expect to resume service shortly. Please note that there has been no impact to the integrity of our service or impact on customer data.

We are deeply sorry for this issue and the experiences this has caused for our customers.

We appreciate your patience while we resolve this issue as quickly as possible.
