DDoS attack, 13 March 2020

At 12:56 UTC, 13 March 2020, BitMEX came under an aggressive DDoS attack, which delayed and prevented requests to the platform. Our security team regained control to prevent further delays and resumed full service within 25 minutes. We have confirmed that the issue earlier today was caused by the same attack. We fixed the underlying issue and we will be issuing a post mortem in due course.

Our engineers are working around the clock to monitor, and mitigate any further issues.

As a reminder, our system status can always be found here.
