The site is back up and running, we're collaborating with other hosting platforms on making sure the FBI know about this attacker.

All core services are fine, running ok and all tested frequently to triple check.

Time for a cuppa.

Someone called Jesus is systematically attacking podcast hosting platforms with blackmail DDOS attempts.

This has brought down Captivate's website, but not any services - ALL publishing, editing, processing, analytics and more services are online and you can log into your dashboard at

This activity has been reported to the FBI and we're collaborating with all other hosts.

To repeat, this ONLY took down the website, not Captivate, the platform.
