Okay, not that I understood a single word you said but I'm guessing that the provider's attacks don't show on the list? Anyhow, I tried to edit my post to add that the new look is amazing, thanks so much for your care for this site, it's a go to site for me,

Can anyone tell me what a DDos attack is? It's really making my Friday night a bummer.

Some sort of
"delivery of service thing"

translates to pain in the rear for most folks!

DDoS = Distributed Denial of Service

It's an attack where hundreds, or even thousands of computers, are directed to simultaneously flood a website with overwhelming traffic such that it either shuts down because the server becomes overloaded, or available bandwidth into the server is filled-up, thus, shutting down access.

There are many different protocols other than HTTP (web pages) on which an attack can take place.

We've seen a combination of two different methods in this particular attack.

a reply to: SkepticOverlord Thank you for the explanation.
So, is it just bunch of punks messing with websites? Can't seem to find a good reason folks would do something so annoying.
Thanks for being on top of things!

LOL
I may have gotten my IP black listed due to trying to load the page too often. I was bored and kept trying while watching a video. I may have tried too hard. Oops!

If I use a proxy or my phone it loads fine. Regular connection on wifi, no go.

Will it reset or do I need to do something?

Is it just a coincidence that this coincides with the Soros sponsored protests in Chicago?

Please don't do that!


It actually makes matters worse, as each attempt to refresh is a new content request to hit the server.

Are you sure the DDoS wasn't just every ATS member hitting the refresh button at the same time?

I realized too late. I was mindlessly clicking and talking to my kid about homework. Sorry man.

I saw it was up and running on another site and went full zombie....oops!

I dont know if that was it though I am guessing....

My bad. I stop.

That's what happens when my threads get locked. I hope you learned your lesson.

It's such a dumb thing to do, knockout people's ability to exercise free speech because they don't agree with you.

Smart kids know why, and who. ATS is smart for not saying .

Is anyone else noticing that autoplay video/audio ads are now happening today since this ddos attack ?

I've had them autoplay on just about every single page I've opened up so far... never had that before. I'm just wondering if it's because of the ddos thing ?

It's so bad that I've had to turn on my ad blocker in the hopes that it will get fixed at some point ? I can't surf ATS with these audio/video ads suddenly playing... it means I can't watch a posted video or listen to music while I surf on here today.

Please tell me this is just a temporary problem.

Very frustrating.

Yes.

I've tracked down the provider and have taken steps to prevent them. It may take some time (hours), but it should go away.

I was having the same issue(s), though I'm using a Firefox offshoot called "Pale Moon".
