CAO site under attack

Third-level application site goes down due to “malicious attacks”.

Message on the CAO website this morning.

THE CAO WEBSITE has gone down due to “malicious attacks from an unknown source”, according to the site.

The CAO said that it is working to restore the service as soon as possible.

Over 77,000 people who applied for a third-level course through the CAO system are expecting to find out today if they have secured a place.

The CAO urged students not to panic if they are unable to access the site, as the deadline for course acceptance is a week away.

The points can also be checked here.
