We experienced a DDoS attack affecting the RIPE NCC AuthDNS service last night from approximately 21:30 to 22:30 (local time). This resulted in an increase in latency for recursors trying to answer queries for their downstream clients during that time. The attack ended before we were able to mitigate its effects.
