SAN JOSE, Calif., June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Move, Inc., (NASDAQ:MOVE), a leading provider of online real estate services, today reported its websites are experiencing a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack. 

The attack directs massive amounts of traffic to our websites and makes realtor.com®, Top Producer® Systems, and Move's other Internet services inaccessible. Move operates realtor.com®, the official website of the National Association of REALTORS®.

Move and its network service providers are working quickly to assess and resolve the outages with the least amount of disruption to consumers and customers.

Move is working closely with federal law enforcement to identify the persons responsible for the attack, which began mid-day Tuesday, June 17, 2014.
