We were being hit with a rather persistent flood, requiring the re-deployment of some rather expensive mitigation tools.



More as I know it.

Holy crap! I physically had to get off my butt. Do the dishes by hand. Walk the dogs. And teach the neighbor kid 2 semesters worth of Anatomy&Physiology.....

Good to see it up again.



MORE: I don't like the use of the words "Expensive Mitigation Tools".
Sounds like I need to make another PayPal contribution........ details awaiting..

I'm a lost newbie.

I havnt noticed any anomalies.

Who does these attacks?

What are they trying to accomplish?

Nice work keeping the boards up. Thought it was just my connection (downloading some software and it was going slowly) and running KSP in the background (it's a resource hog on my machine).

Good. That means it can only get better for you.

If they knew, they wouldn't keep doing it.

What does any hacker/web attacker try to accomplish? For some it's the thrill, I suppose.

This was a rather serious hit with simultaneous UDP and TCMP attacks.

Four hours after it started, it's still happening. It overloaded our firewall's logging. I'm waiting for more details from our hosting provider.

Someone/entity is very intent on disrupting what's happening here.

Seems like another day in the neighborhood. Didn't ATS have a history of such attacks, and previous mitigation practices were no longer available, or did I accidentally make that up?

With regard to expenses, I have always felt you guys should have a store. Even CafePress or something.
