Many of our users may have noticed things running a lot slower than usual in the mobile apps and on the website. This is because Nearby Live recently became the target of a sophisticated group of spammers who found a way to abuse our messaging system to promote their “cam” website. While they were sending their spam messages, they also launched a DDOS attack on our servers to keep us busy and hopefully not notice what they were doing. It took us a few days and a lot of work, but things are back to normal now. The spam has been removed. Safeguards have been implemented to keep it from returning. We have partnered with a leading DDOS prevention firm to help beef up our infrastructure. Thanks for all your patience over the past few days while we implemented these changes.
