Important Notice from Turnitin
Over the last three days, Turnitin has been the target of an extensive distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack with the intent of taking down the service. A DDoS attack tries to overload the connection to our servers, rendering the Turnitin website unavailable to visitors. Our network team has been largely successful in combating the attacks, though the attempts have occasionally succeeded in causing intermittent service disruptions, slow service response times and other network issues. While these attacks have created intermittent connectivity issues, the attacks have not compromised server storage or data integrity.
Below, we’ve included some basic troubleshooting steps for those encountering issues accessing Turnitin.
