The popular developer collaboration website GitHub experienced more downtime due to distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks for the fourth time this month.

The website reported users were having problems connecting to the site early this morning, and after a period of investigation determined that they were experiencing connectivity due to the DDoS assault by an unknown party.

“We have confirmed GitHub.com and Gist are both undergoing a large DDoS attack and are working to mitigate the attack,” said a statement on GitHub’s status page.

Gist was reported to be similarly experiencing a denial of service attack, though the site was able to mitigate the barrage with no measurable downtime.

Connectivity problems due to the attacks were remedied within an hour or so, and the site was again available.

“We have mitigated the attack against GitHub.com and Gist. We’re going to keep our status at yellow until we can confirm all attacks have ceased,” the site stated.
