Editor’s Note: The following is an update from Move, Inc. CEO Steve Berkowitz on the status of the company’s websites following last week’s distributed denial of service attack (DDoS). For last week’s  coverage of the incident, click here.

Last week Move, Inc. experienced a malicious Internet attack that made realtor.com®, Top Producer®, and other Move websites temporarily inaccessible. This distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack generated massive amounts of Internet traffic directed at the websites Move operates. The good news is that the websites have been stable since Saturday, June 21, and we have taken steps to strengthen them by working with security experts at Akamai Technologies’ Prolexic division.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Since the attack, we have greatly increased our websites’ protection. Unfortunately, these types of attacks are becoming more common for online businesses. We weren’t the first, and sadly, we won’t be the last company to be targeted. This was a frustrating experience, but we have no reason to believe this attack jeopardized any consumer information, customer information, or website security.

More good news is that we’re continuing to release products, to generate leads for REALTORS®, and to help customers manage their businesses. Our goal is to continue to provide outstanding products and services for our customers and consumers.

Thank you for all the encouraging emails and calls during this time. We wish we could thank you all individually!

Regards,

Steve Berkowitz

CEO, Move, Inc.

    Top Producer should have sent out an email the it’s users explaining what had happened. I tried repeatedly to log-in and couldn’t. They have our email addresses, let us know what’s going on! Even now that it’s back online, TP hasn’t notified it’s users about the outage!

  • Dennis Bragg says:

    For sure top Producer should have somehow notified users of outage. I never knew it was not my computer for 2 days, very annoying to have IT folks try to log in Top Producer and find out days later it is not my computer.
