San Jose, CA (PRWEB) February 17, 2010
Garrett Gafke, President and CEO of Paymate, stated today, "A DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) was launched against Paymate that has caused a temporary disruption in the company's payment service."
Gafke also noted that at no time during this disruption has any user data or information of any kind been at risk.
"It's unclear who launched the attack against Paymate and what their motives may have been," said Gafke. "These types of Internet attacks typically hit websites as they become more popular. We will notify everyone immediately once our service is back up and operating normally."
The company is working diligently with eBay and its customer service teams to provide updates and ensure proper information is delivered while experiencing this issue. The company expects the DDoS issue will be resolved quickly and that it will soon be back to providing its customers the fast, safe, and reliable experience they've come to expect from Paymate.
