CompTIA’s cybersecurity team recently identified an anomaly in website traffic to the LabSim platform. Further review of the incident confirmed a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) incident that affected one area of CompTIA’s web presence. DDoS attacks are typically carried out by miscreants flooding a target website with traffic with the intent to cause disruption and crash the site. A DDoS incident of this type occurred periodically between late evening on 1/28/2024 and the morning of 1/31/2024 on one area of CompTIA’s web presence. Analysis confirms the incident was strictly surface-level and did not affect any backend systems, infrastructure or data records.
The issue has been mitigated and CompTIA’s cybersecurity team will continue to monitor the situation for any further issues. Please contact technical support with any questions.
