I've been surfing this site more lately and I've noticed another huge decrease in bandwidth speed..

Are we experiencing a "busy week" or something? I know you just got the new servers and may not be eager to jump to low-bandwidth mode.. but theres been times I've waited 5+minutes for a page to load while I surfed other pages just fine..

Or maybe I'm just riding a bad router to ATS.. anyone else having obvious slow downs?

It was fine last night (UK time) but today it's been slow.
Maybe it's the amount of traffic with it being the weekend?

I have to agree. There has been a slow down on the board response. I acccess the board via three systems, using IE, Opera, Mozilla. No difference, site is slow on all systems.

It is kind of slow today..

Maybe its due to too much traffic. Its elevated alert today

We had some phenomenally high board use, especially at the start of the weekend. All part of our master plan to get every single person on ATS at one time. A large goal, I'll admit, but a worthy one.

We've been getting an average of these types of hits three to four times a second. If I didn't know better, I'd think it was an HTTP-based denial of service attack. (Look at the spikes on the traffic graph on the board home page.) There are over 250,000 occurances of this IP in today's log file. I've had no choice but to block the IP.

Robot eh? Could just be a bunch of robots. Are you sure that's the IP? That points to this website.

SO if you want I have information on this IP that I found with some of my network tools. Such as "Advanced Administrative Tools" and "Retina eeye digital security" If you need any help u2u me and I will gladly lend my services.

I think you are more versed in security then me, but I still offer my help.

It's just like google bot.

No doubt Microsoft are preparing them selves for some kind of new search system.

If i was you i'd set a redirect to bounce that ip back to Microsoft.com

Actually, it's not Microsoft.

I've been tracking down the machine sending us high traffic, and as CPYKOmega ellued, it's not owned by MS.

After some communication with the service provider hosting the machine, it's been apparently compromised and directed to attack ATS.
