Slow internet connectivity probably due to hacking attacks of government websites

One of the internet service providers (ISP) of UP Manila, PREGINET-ASTI, has been experiencing DOS (Denial of Service) hacking attack since last week. This could be related to the recent rash of hacking attacks of government websites by Anonymous Philippines. These DOS attacks resulted in slow and intermittent Internet connectivity of UP Manila and PGH. At present, the IMS has decided to route all Internet traffic through PLDT, our other ISP. As of today, the 30 Mbps bandwidth from PLDT is the only Internet connectivity of UP Manila and PGH. Please expect slow internet connectivity. The IMS hopes that the problems of PREGINET-ASTI will be resolved soonest. Romeo L. Villarta Jr., MD MPH Director Information Management Service UP Manila
