    Further to our previous update:

    We are now at liberty to inform our clients worldwide that we had to take emergency steps to control a DDoS attack on our platform which affected core messaging services. Our senior engineers have restored full service but you may experience some small delays as we process the backlog. We remain vigilant to further attacks on our infrastructure. For security reasons, we cannot release full details about the exact nature of the incident or the steps we took in mitigation. We thank our clients most sincerely for their patience and understanding in this matter.
