GitHub is down again for the second time in the span of a month —  this time from a  Distributed Denial of Service Attack (DDoS). To combat, GitHub says it has temporarily disabled service on port 80 while they nvestigate the source of a connection flood.  According to the site, HTTPS, GIT, and SSH service are unaffected.

Here’s the status update about the attack when it hit at 1:33 p.m:

We are experiencing issues due to a DDOS attack, working hard to restore service

Here’s their status update posted at 1:05 p.m.

We’re experiencing some connectivity issues at the moment. GitHub.com is currently unavailable while we resolve this.

Last month,  a database migration went awry  on GitHub causing an outage and poor availability.

Disruptions have nagged GitHub over the past week. Two minor disruptions occurred yesterday and the day before.

(We will update about the GitHub attack as it become available)
