On January 11 and 12, our hosting company confirmed a DDoS attack on the domain hosting the Tech Girls Application platform. This resulted in slowness and 503 Errors for many users. As of 8:00 PM EST on Wednesday, January 12, Reverse Proxy DDoS Mitigation measures have been applied, which have shown success thus far. It is important to know that this sort of attack did not compromise any personal data.
We are encouraging all applicants to continue their process and we are extending the deadline from Saturday, January 15 to Monday, January 17 at 11:00 AM EST (U.S.)
