Good news: FleetMon’s AIS coverage is back to normal after the malicious attacks on the FleetMon servers over the weekend. Thanks to all partners who supported us, and thanks to all FleetMon users for their understanding. We are now better geared to resist such attacks should they appear again in the future.
Starting Saturday evening 16:00 UTC, the FleetMon system finds itself under attack from unknown sources in the Internet that aim to interrupt or stop FleetMon’s services. While our servers have been successfully stabilized in the meantime, AIS reception is affected and not yet back to normal level. Thank you very much for your understanding.
We are working hard to block this kind of attack and identify the source, hopefully restoring full FleetMon coverage during Monday.
Update: AIS Coverage has been fully restored in the meantime. See our following blog post.
