RIPE Database Query Results Not Showing Updates

On Monday, 9 February between approximately 9:00 and 10:00 (UTC), any changes made in whois updates in the RIPE Database were not reflected in query results.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Today, between 12:30 - 15:00 (UTC+1) the RIPE NCC will carry out emergency maintenance work a number of core services. This is due to an announced security vunerability.
