So ATS and GLP both get attacked?

Conspiracy fodder at best my friends!

Not much else to say but welcome back ATS and thank you for your hard work getting us back to the boards...


Withdrawal crisis averted.

Peace

I know the feeling was feeling rather miffed when I couldn't get on here earlier..maybe the D dos attack was the real reason for all UK aircraft being grounded yesterday. At least in the USA you get to the bottom of things in the UK we just seem to get fobbed off for our own security...

Totally bizarre timing...I was just discussing the UK air traffic control "glitch" and Rodinus was saying there was a lot of Ddos activity-I tried to reply,but BOOM ATS was down-due to a damned Ddos attack.

Well played to the Staff who got it back so quick!

I was checking out IPViking (mentioned on ATS twitter)earlier today and it looked like the USA and China were hitting each other really bad-China was doing the most attacks I think.
World War Internet!!

Speaking of attacks, look what I just found:

epew epew?

Of particular interest to me is the one labelled dbcontrol-oms. Decibel control oms? Sounds ominous.

We Win!

Looks like WW3 going on. Imagine if those were missiles?

Blimey! That's quite frightening in an Inter Continental Missile sort of way! China in the lead!

I had a glimpse of real life this morning without ATS.

No sir...Didn't like it much at all. Actually went to CNN to get away from real life for a few minutes.

Oh the shame.

Yeah,it remined me of a really complicated game of DefCon5.
Not sure if its that busy every day,I will be checking out the IPViking site more often now.
Its actually pretty cool as a live screensaver.

Anyone know who launched the attack?
I wonder if someone was about to be a whistleblower,and the site got hacked to stop them being able to release info until the whistleblower was "silenced."

Um... Downfall though....

No new content to sift through!

Hurry, someone post some conspiracy threads!

Keep in mind that those are mostly attacks on the honeypots (traps) setup to lure hackers.

Not everyone has them, so when the traffic bursts come through, they do more than just flood the honeypots, they also flood the ISPs. So if GLP and ATS are getting their service from a provider who also provides service to whomever is being attacked, they will be indirectly impacted and there isn't much that ATS can do. Typically, you get a second ISP on a different backbone so that you can have a failover, but this is not cheap.

Either way, glad to see the site back up and running!

Where else am I going to get my dose of real news...

geez...I had to actually go out in the kitchen and talk to my 87 year old mother-in-law who lives with us....I almost drank some brandy with my morning coffee because of it. I wonder if I can claim a DDoS attack as an excuse for getting s**tfaced at 8 in the morning.
