ONID Shell Server Outage Saturday January 10th 9:45am – 10:15am

Posted in Outages by outages on January 10th, 2015 at 12:40 pm

The ONID shell server (shell.onid.oregonstate.edu) was not accepting new SSH connections between 9:45am and 10:15am on Saturday January 10th. The outage was caused by an error while adding new network ranges to the block list. The block list is used to prevent connections from malicious network addresses that are trying to guess passwords for ONID users.
