    Hi Evan,

    Hope you're well?

    These could have been due to our servers being overloaded or intermittent issues. We have been having a fair few DDOS attacks lately.

    Is everything currently working ok now? if so, just ignore them, but keep an eye on it just in case and do let us know if this continues to keep happening frequently.

    Hope this helps

    It's not just WPEngine. I'm getting the same thing on different servers. The WPMUDev dashboard, Defender...every time wordpress does a cron job. Everything from curl error 28 to curl error 7s trying to connect to port 443. Unknown SSL type errors. Then it will work for a second...then it won't again. BUT If I delete everything WPMUDev related the errors go away.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
