If you’ve seen the news or visited some of your favorite websites today, you may have noticed that the internet is having a bit of a rough day. Outages and DDoS attacks have made many very reputable sites inaccessible.
The good news
Your access to Buzz and BrainHoney has been and continues to be consistently available.
The bad news
- Some of the content in your courses may be linked to a site that has been impacted, which would affect your access.
- Emails sent today (primarily during 5:30-7:00 AM MDT and 10:00-10:40 AM MDT) from Buzz or BrainHoney may or may not have been delivered. Unfortunately, if an email failed to be delivered due to these outages, you may not be informed of its failure.
What should you do?
If you have sent an email using Buzz or BrainHoney today and you can’t verify with the recipient(s) that it was received, we recommend that you either:
- Resend the message from another email client (e.g., Gmail, Outlook).
- Resend the message from Buzz or BrainHoney once the widespread internet issues are resolved.
