According to an information systems manager at The Seattle Times Co., Bandwidth.com was hit by a distributed denial of services attack. Bandwidth.com supplies back-end phone services for much of the country, including The Seattle Times and its affiliate newspapers, the Herald-Republic and the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin.
The main phone numbers for the Yakima Herald-Republic and its call center became unavailable Monday afternoon because of issues at a major communications company.
